While none of the major business publications provide rankings of Strategy and Entrepreneurship PhD programs, UNC is consistently ranked among the top business schools in the world by The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and U.S. News & World Report.
A key feature of the PhD program at UNC is its focus on collaboration between PhD students and faculty. At UNC, each PhD student is assigned to a faculty member and students learn the research process by working closely with faculty members on current research. Moreover, the environment at UNC encourages close collaboration between students and as a result, PhD students benefit from the mentoring provided by their classmates.
In addition, PhD students at UNC have the opportunity to take a wide range of classes, including courses at Duke.
One of the unique features of UNC's PhD program is that the Strategy department at UNC has strong faculty support in a wide variety of major research areas. As a result, PhD students have multiple research areas to choose from and they can count on faculty support regardless of their chosen research focus.
