The marketing faculty embrace research traditions grounded in psychology and behavioral decision-making, economics and industrial organization, and statistics and management science.
These traditions support research inquiries into consumer behavior, firm behavior, the development of methods for improving the allocation of marketing resources, and understanding of how marketing works in a market setting.
A small number of students are accepted into the PhD Program in marketing each year, with a total of about 18 marketing students in residence. Student-faculty relationships are close, both professionally and socially. This permits the tailoring of the program of study to fit the background and career goals of the individual.
A marketing student’s program of study usually includes several doctoral seminars taught by marketing faculty, some doctoral seminars taught by other Stanford GSB faculty, and a considerable number of graduate-level courses in related departments outside the business school, depending on a student’s particular area of investigation.
The field is often broken down into two broad subareas: behavioral marketing and quantitative marketing.
Behavioral marketing is the study of how individuals behave in consumer-relevant domains. This area of marketing draws from social psychology and behavioral decision theory and includes a wide variety of topics such as:
- Decision making
- Attitudes and persuasion
- Social influence
- Motivation and goals
- New technologies
- Consumer neuroscience
Students in this track take classes in behaviorally oriented subjects within Stanford GSB and also in the Psychology Department . All students have the opportunity to interact with Stanford GSB faculty in every group and, indeed, across the Stanford campus.
Behavioral Interest Group
There is also a formal institutional link between the behavioral side of marketing and the micro side of organizational behavior , which is called the Behavioral Interest Group. The Stanford GSB Behavioral Lab links members of this group. This lab fosters collaborative work across field boundaries among those with behavioral interests.
The Behavioral Lab is an interdisciplinary social research laboratory open to all Stanford GSB faculty and PhD students. The lab’s research primarily spans the fields of organizational behavior and behavioral marketing, and covers a rich and diverse array of topics, including attitudes and preferences, consumer decision-making, group dynamics, leadership, morality, power, and prosocial behavior.
Preparation and Qualifications
A background in psychology and experience with experimental methods and data analysis provide optimal preparation for students pursuing the behavioral track, though students from a variety of backgrounds have performed well in the program.
The quantitative marketing faculty at Stanford emphasize theoretically grounded empirical analysis of applied marketing problems. This line of inquiry draws primarily on fundamentals in applied microeconomic theory, industrial organization, and econometrics and statistics.
Questions of interest include:
Investigating consumer choices and purchase behavior
Examining product, pricing, advertising, and promotion strategies of firms
Analyzing competition in a wide range of domains
Development and application of large-scale experimentation, high-dimensional statistics, applied econometrics and big-data methods to solve marketing problems
A common theme of research is the use of rigorous quantitative methods to study important, managerially relevant marketing questions.
Students in this track take common classes in quantitatively oriented subjects with others at Stanford GSB, as well as the Economics and Statistics Departments. All Stanford GSB students have the opportunity to interact with Stanford GSB faculty in every group and, indeed, across the Stanford campus.
Solid training in economics and statistical methods, as well as programming skills, offers a distinct advantage for quantitative marketing students, but students from various backgrounds such as engineering, computer science, and physics have thrived in the program.

Tepper School of Business
Ph.D. Program in Marketing
Studies include brand-choice models, analytical and structural models, marketing/operations interface, marketing/it interface, and theories of consumer behavior..
The Tepper School's doctoral program in marketing has a reputation of producing highly skilled and innovative researchers who are well grounded in the basic disciplines underlying marketing thought and who practice and create the state-of-the-art in marketing. Most go on to become faculty members at premier academic institutions throughout the world.
The Ph.D. program offers one of the most complete and solid sequence of Ph.D. courses among leading universities in the world. Students usually take one and a half years of required courses offered by the marketing, economics, psychology and statistics departments. After passing the qualifying exam at the end of one and a half years, they begin the research stage, find advisors according to their own research interests, and start writing their Ph.D. dissertation under the guidance of the advisors. Typically, it takes four to five years to complete the program and obtain the Ph.D. degree. In addition to rigorous course work, students benefit from the weekly seminars in which scholars from all over the world come present their most recent research. Students also have their own workshops in which they present their own research work.
The Tepper School boasts excellent faculty, specializing in adopting analytical, empirical and consumer behavior approaches to address fundamental marketing problems. Historically, Tepper School faculty and graduates have made fundamental contributions to marketing theory in the areas of brand-choice models, analytical models for marketing strategy, empirical structural models, conjoint analysis, marketing and operations management interface, marketing and information systems interface and theories of consumer behavior.
A few examples of research topics that students and faculty members have recently worked on are:
- How a manager allocates marketing resources to various alternatives such as promotion, advertising and sales force. By developing decision support systems to aid managers, we hope to understand better the allocation problem and to improve marketing efficiency.
- How to design new products while simultaneously considering consumer preferences, engineering constraints and design aesthetics.
- How to understand latent preferences of online customers by statistically analyzing their web browsing patterns.
- Psychological processes that drive consumer choice among alternative products. How we can help them make better decisions.
Starting from 1971, the Tepper School has produced a significant number of leading researchers in marketing, including at least ten chaired professors at top-ten business schools and many other world-renowned marketing researchers (high ratio given the size). Recent students who graduated from the Tepper School marketing program have obtained faculty positions at top research schools such as Chicago, Columbia, Duke, Stanford and New York University. More recent graduates have won dissertation awards from the American Marketing Association, the Association for Consumer Research, and the American Psychological Association.
Given the size of our Ph.D. program, these achievements of our Ph.D. alumni demonstrate the outstanding quality of our Ph.D. program and also win us the reputation as one of the best schools that produce the most promising marketing researchers.
As a Ph.D. student of marketing at the Tepper School, you will notice a few things that distinguish your experience at the Tepper School.
Outstanding Training in Economics, Psychology and Statistics Foundations
As a tradition, our students are required to obtain rigorous training in economics, econometrics, psychology and statistics. The comprehensive and rigorous training equips our students with a solid understanding of economics and psychology, the state-of-the-art research techniques, and cutting-edge approaches for solving fundamental research problems. Historically, this approach has had high payoffs - our students are not only capable of solving ground-breaking research problems using the most cutting-edge techniques, but also demonstrate great endurance in their future academic careers.
Comprehensive Sequence of Marketing Doctoral Courses
We offer the most complete sequence of Ph.D. courses. You will find many Ph.D. courses offered by marketing faculties that cover their research expertise. These marketing Ph.D. courses progressively and comprehensively introduce cutting-edge research methodologies, the development of literature in each discipline, and the most recent research interest of each faculty member. Faculty are almost available 24/7 to work with Ph.D. students. They also spend an enormous amount of time preparing students for their job market. Most students continue working with faculty at CMU even after graduating and enjoy a lifetime of support and friendship from them.
Close and Caring Working Relationship Between Faculty and Students
At the Tepper School, our most important mission is to produce the best Ph.D. students. We treat Ph.D. students as junior faculty and the excellent mentoring system guarantees enough time from faculty to each Ph.D. student. The school typically admits only a few students each year. The doctoral program is intentionally kept small in order to increase faculty-student interaction and to take advantage of the business school's resources. They develop, in close conjunction with the faculty members, flexible programs addressing their specific research interests. Our students have access to award-winning faculty - many of whom are leaders in their field. Our faculty works closely with students creating new knowledge on a daily basis with their students.
Inspiring and Innovative Inter-Disciplinary Research Environment
Recognized for our unique interdisciplinary environment, students are often encouraged to work across departmental lines. As a result, our graduates have opportunities to engage in groundbreaking research and sharpen their ability to solve complex problems through leadership and collaboration.
In summary, the marketing group has a strong commitment to research and devotes considerable resources to training future scholars. We emphasize the development of sophisticated, state-of-the-art research skills that are required to solve fundamental research problems and create new knowledge in a chosen area of marketing. The Ph.D. program welcomes applications from candidates from all countries with distinguished academic backgrounds who are interested in pursuing a career in research universities. Admission to the marketing program at the Tepper School offers the student an opportunity to continue in this tradition of high achievement and excellence.
The research focus of our program directly translates in their early involvement in research projects. Our doctoral students work closely with faculty members to produce high quality research in several relevant marketing topics.
- Behavioral and Experimental Economics
- Charitable Giving and Nonprofit Marketing
- Consumer Financial Decision Making
- Consumer Happiness/Satisfaction
- Electronic Commerce
- Hedonic Adaptation
- High Tech Marketing

The PhD degree in Marketing is a research degree that is focused on developing cutting-edge skills that are needed to do research on the frontiers of marketing.
The PhD program in Behavioral Marketing at Yale focuses on how individuals think and behave in consumer-relevant domains. The program of study is inter-disciplinary, drawing from the fields of consumer behavior, social psychology, cognitive psychology, decision research, and behavioral economics.
Yale Marketing Seminar
The Yale Marketing Seminar Series presents recent research papers in marketing. The goal is to bring researchers from other universities to the Yale campus to stimulate exchange of ideas and deepen understanding of marketing trends.
The marketing program offers two broad areas of research: consumer behavior and quantitative marketing.
In the consumer behavior track, students are exposed to the fundamentals of psychology (cognitive psychology, social psychology, and behavioral decision theory) and experimental research and on how to use them to address marketing problems, such as consumer judgment and decision making and the role of the multiple variables influencing this process (e.g., attitudes, emotions, motivation, individual differences, perception, social influence, etc).
In the quantitative marketing track, students are exposed to the fundamentals of economics (microeconomics, industrial organization, econometrics, etc.) and how to use them to address marketing problems such as mathematical modeling of buyer-seller interactions, consumer choice processes, the allocation of marketing resources into components of the marketing mix, and product development.
Alternatively, students may focus on the interplay between these two broad areas (consumer behavior and quantitative marketing) and how the economics and psychology interface can help researchers better understand and predict marketing phenomena.
In order to cope with these expanding horizons, the program is designed to provide broad exposure to the advanced literature in each field. The program includes a series of marketing PhD seminars, the development of expertise in a particular social science discipline (economics and/or psychology), and technical skills appropriate to the analysis of the problems to be studied. Students select an area for intensive study and develop a program that trains them to comprehend and perform cutting-edge research in that field.

The PhD Program is integral to the research of MIT Sloan's world-class faculty. With a reputation as risk-takers who are unafraid to embrace the unconventional, they are engaged in exciting disciplinary and interdisciplinary research that often includes PhD students as key team members.
Research centers across MIT Sloan and MIT provide a rich setting for collaboration and exploration. In addition to exposure to the faculty, PhD students also learn from one another in a creative, supportive research community.
Throughout MIT Sloan's history, our professors have devised theories and fields of study that have had a profound impact on management theory and practice.
From Douglas McGregor's Theory X/Theory Y distinction to Nobel-recognized breakthroughs in finance by Franco Modigliani and in option pricing by Robert Merton and Myron Scholes, MIT Sloan's faculty have been unmatched innovators.
This legacy of innovative thinking and dedication to research impacts every faculty member and filters down to the students who work beside them.

The Marketing area at the Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. School of Business has a long tradition of leadership in doctoral education. The school’s marketing PhD graduates are among the nation's best in terms of the impact of their research on the profession, according to a study by Academic Assessment Services. Purdue graduates were one of only five sets of alumni to be ranked in the top 15 on each of five separate measures of influence.

The objective of the program is to educate cutting-edge future researchers who will contribute to the advancement of marketing and management science. We appreciate that marketing is both an art and a science and will prepare you for a career in academia, marketing consulting, marketing research/analytics, UX/UI design, business development and more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Marketing Programs
Is a doctorate in marketing worth it.
Earning a doctorate in marketing requires a significant investment of time and energy. This work is well worth the effort for anyone who wants to teach marketing at a university or build a career in research.
By earning a Ph.D. in marketing, learners become experienced researchers with all the skills necessary to build a career in academia. Furthermore, this terminal degree demonstrates a person's deep understanding of marketing, particularly in their specific area of study. Prospective students should consider whether these outcomes align with their personal and professional goals.
What can I do with a doctorate in marketing?
A doctorate in marketing opens career pathways in academia and research. Many graduates go on to teach marketing at the university level. They typically continue to conduct research in these positions as well. In these jobs, professionals advance marketing knowledge while also training the next generation of marketing scholars.
Graduates may also work as consultants to large businesses looking for cutting-edge methods to connect with customers. Prospective students should choose programs based on their career goals, as some programs are geared more toward research and academia.
How long does it take to get a doctorate in marketing?
Students should expect to take about 4-6 years to earn a doctorate in marketing. However, some candidates take longer to complete their dissertations. These programs often include two distinct phases. First, students take graduate-level courses in research, marketing, statistics, and more. During this time, they may need to write comprehensive research papers as well. These requirements typically take about two years.
When they pass these courses, learners either complete another research paper or pass a comprehensive exam to move into the next phase, called "candidacy." During the candidacy period, they work on their dissertations. It takes about three years to complete the dissertation process.
How much money can I make with a doctorate in marketing?
Many who earn a doctorate in marketing go on to be postsecondary teachers in universities and colleges. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that professors earn a median annual salary of $79,640. However, those who teach business earn an average of $94,360 annually. These instructors may make more depending on where they teach and if they gain tenure.
The BLS predicts that the number of job openings for professors will grow by 12% between 2020 and 2030, faster than the national average growth rate of 8% for all occupations. Graduates can also go into marketing practice. Payscale data from July 2022 reports that marketing directors make an average annual salary of $92,480.

The American Marketing Association Foundation (AMAF), in conjunction with the AMA Academic Council, established a scholarship program in 2003 focused on creating scholarship funds for populations underrepresented in the marketing profession.
The number of African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans pursuing doctoral degrees in marketing is too low to reach a future goal of increased diversity in the marketing profession in both academic and corporate settings. For example, during the period from 1983-2005, of the 2,999 total earned doctoral degrees in marketing, only 151, or 5%, of those earned were by underrepresented populations (86 by African Americans, 49 by Hispanics, and 16 by Native Americans.) For many of the years during this period, there was just a handful of each of these underrepresented populations earning a doctoral degree in marketing, and for several years there were none for some of the groups. Although there has been improvement in these numbers over the past several years, there is still much work to be done in order to meet our goal of a more diverse marketing profession.
Through its Valuing Diversity PhD Scholarship Program, the AMAF seeks to widen the opportunities for underrepresented populations to attend marketing doctoral programs. In 2003, the Foundation awarded its first two scholarships under the Valuing Diversity PhD Scholarship Program. For the academic year, several $1,000- $2,500 scholarships will be granted to students currently enrolled in PhD programs. The scholarships are funded by the donors of the AMAF’s Valuing Diversity Fund and gifts from Sage Publishing.
An AMA Academic Communities team member will organize a selection committee that may consist of PhD Project alumni, past scholarship recipients, AMAF members, AMA Academic Council members, and/or at-large marketing faculty. The committee will evaluate each submission and determine the recipients of the scholarship.
Recognition and Benefits
The scholarships will be presented at the PhD Project dinner held in conjunction with the AMA Summer Academic Conference.
As the philanthropic arm of the AMA, the AMA Foundation champions individual marketers who are making an impact in our profession and community. We recognize marketing visionaries who have elevated the field, and we support the next generation of marketers who will transform the profession.

MPS in Management
Full-time residential and STEM-designated
10 months starting in August
Our STEM Designation: The Science and Technology of Management
No matter what role you play in your organization, technology is likely a big part of your workday, from how you interact with others to how you make important decisions. That’s why you’ll find a heavy emphasis on technology in most top master’s in management programs.

MBA vs. MPS: Graduate Management Degrees Explained
As you explore business management graduate degrees , you might be wondering about the difference between an MBA and MPS. Here’s a brief explanation:
A Master of Business Administration (MBA) program typically requires prior academic and professional business experience.
A Master of Professional Studies (MPS) is ideal for students who earned undergraduate degrees in non-business fields.
If your undergraduate major was in a field outside of business, earning your MPS in Management will allow you to build those core business skills at the graduate level.
(If you majored in business administration, accounting, marketing, or another related field, you may wish to explore the Johnson School’s MBA options .)
Our Faculty: Learn from Leading Scholars and Practitioners
As an MPS in Management student, you’ll learn from dedicated scholars and practitioners with a diverse range of academic and industry experience in asset management, edtech, decision making, behavioral research, machine learning, management communication, compensation, and other fields.

Alum: I studied at Parsons for a year long graduate program during the academic year 2021-2022. They had just resumed in person classes with a bit of remote sessions towards the beginning. They handled COVID testing and protocols for on campus learning well. I lived on campus and explored a lot of spaces and facilities like the libraries in different buildings, Making Center, cafeteria, etc. The school itself is really great, but I also felt it was just a school that carries itself on prestige… I wish they cared more about their students’ complaints more rather than just talking about how successfully they navigated the return to on campus learning. ...

Doctoral Student: The staff at this school are so dedicated towards ensuring that their students succeed. They do this through complete transparency, ensuring students are financially literate, creating mentorship relationships with upperclassmen, regular check-ins, and so forth. It was immediately clear that this school is very invested in the well being of their students. They are aware of the unique difficulties that each student faces and they work hard to help any way that they can. Going back to school can be hard, but I felt so much more confident and secure in my journey when I saw how supported each individual is. They also ensure that students are fully aware what the next 5 years looks like, how we will achieve our milestones along the way, and what resources are available to help us get there. Amazing staff and amazing students. Grad school may be tough, but everyone is there for each other. ... Read 38 reviews

Veterinary and public health alumna wins United States Public Health Service’s Excellence in Public Health Award
November 3, 2023
Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine alumna Ella Rak '17, DVM '23, MPH '23 has won the 2023 Excellence in Public Health Award. This award, issued by the United States Public Health Service, recognizes outstanding work done during veterinary school.
Rak graduated this spring with both her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and her Master’s in Public Health.
“Ella is one of the more impressive veterinary students I have ever worked with, and she has already impacted the lives of people and animals in profound and lasting ways. Ella embodies the true spirit of One Health, demonstrated by her ability to work effectively in both public health and veterinary settings, integrating her knowledge across disciplines and effectively building collaborations to serve her community,” said associate director of the Center for Public and Corporate Veterinary Medicine Cassidy Rist.
In 2017, Rak graduated with bachelor’s degrees in dairy science and in animal and poultry science from Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
Before entering the veterinary school, Rak served in the Peace Corps as an agricultural extension volunteer in Cameroon. There, she facilitated training for preventative care for ruminants and poultry in addition to organizing human health campaigns on topics like malaria education and HIV testing.
In spring 2020, Rak began volunteering with the Medical Reserve Corps, administering COVID tests to the residents of long-term care facilities. She worked her way up to a full-time paid position as a case investigator for the New River Health District, where she investigated over 5,000 cases — all while juggling schoolwork for her dual degree program.
Rak is passionate about improving access to care among ostracized communities such as undocumented communities, people experiencing homelessness, or people who use drugs. Her interest in working with marginalized communities started while she was in the Peace Corps, and that interest intensified as she learned more about these communities while working with the health department.
"I'm thankful for Virginia Tech's public health program for facilitating a lot of these opportunities; I would not have been involved in the beginning stages of being in the medical reserve corps if not for the public health department and the mentorship and support that the program gave me,” said Rak.
Rak says that the projects that meant the most to her were the work she did with the Street Dog Coalition and the Harm Reduction Coalition.
She cofounded the Street Dog Coalition’s Southwest Virginia Chapter and organized teams of volunteers to provide veterinary care and community health services to people experiencing homelessness.
Her work with the Harm Reduction Coalition was inspired while working at a day shelter for people experiencing homelessness — some people wanted to learn how they could keep their pets safe while they were using substances.
Rak led a team of public health students working with Virginia Harm Reduction Coalition to develop field trainings and guidelines for how laypeople can administer Naloxone to pets who have consumed or otherwise been exposed to drugs.
Rak experienced firsthand how providing veterinary care can also provide an opportunity for human health interventions. For example, while administering a rabies vaccine, veterinary professionals can explain to the dog’s owner about how vaccines work, combating misinformation and promoting human health.
"That opened up a lot of doors about ways we can create healthcare interventions that aren't necessarily centered around just the pet or the person,” Rak said. “If we can look at them as a unit, we can have overall improved health outcomes.”
Rak was the first veterinary student in the Emergency Response Branch of the Centers for Disease Control’s Epi Elective Program. The Epi Elective Program is a training program for people pursuing advanced degrees, and it allowed Rak to see public health in action on a national scale.
"I'm really proud of the variety of experiences I was able to have. I think it made me a very well-rounded public health professional, even though I've taken a different path,” said Rak.
Having graduated this past May, Rak is now an emergency veterinarian in Richmond, Virginia. However, public health is still a priority.
"I’m really passionate about continuing to have a public health and community-based approach even when working one-on-one with clients — whether that's through opioid education, being able to discuss accidental exposures with clients, or working with clients who are experiencing housing insecurity themselves.” Rak said. “No matter what setting you're in, you can still make an impact in public health and on the community as a whole."
