Overview

What is Finance at WVU like?

Description

The program is designed to be completed in four or five years, depending on the student's background, interests and dissertation progress. The program of study requires the satisfactory completion of coursework plus dissertation research.

Students will take courses in economic theory, econometrics and finance, followed by a comprehensive examination and dissertation research.

The PhD program in Business Administration at WVU is a full-time graduate program and requires at least three years in residence. The residency requirement is important because the doctoral degree has aspects of an apprenticeship that can only be accomplished on campus, working directly with the business faculty and because teaching on campus is a requirement of the program. To prepare PhD candidates for university teaching responsibilities, students are expected to teach after their second year in the program. They will work closely with faculty to ensure quality instruction and receive feedback on their development as university-level teachers.

The program will not be admitting for Fall 2022.
