“By the end of the conference first session,
I knew this was it. I was so excited. I had
found the people who understood me.”
You could influence the next generation of leaders.
Imagine what it’s like to devote your life, and your career to changing
the face of corporate America. If you are of African-American, Hispanic
American, or Native American descent and interested in pursuing a
career as a business school professor, The PhD Project can guide you
towards your new future—mentoring the next generation.
We are an alliance of foundations, corporations, universities, and
professional and academic organizations. At our annual conference, held
every November in Chicago, you’ll network with professors, doctoral
program directors and doctoral students and gain program insights in 2
days that normally take months to acquire.
