Why UNC Strategy
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.
