Ph.D. in Business Administration, Concentration in Management Information Systems
The Ph.D. in Business Administration with a concentration in Management Information Systems (MIS) is designed to provide a theoretical basis for advancing the state of knowledge in MIS. Texas Tech was one of the first universities to establish a doctoral program in management information systems and has developed a world-wide presence of its MIS doctoral alumni.
We currently have one of the top programs in the world for applying neuroscience to the study of information systems. We also have top scholars researching the topics of technology acceptance, behavioral decision making, information search, information visualization, quantitative research methods, and business analytics.
Ph.D. students are given the opportunity to work with faculty on current research projects. There is a group of active research faculty working on research projects at any given time and there are various opportunities for students to become engaged with research early in their doctoral program, with the goal of publication in top academic journals. This closely supervised mentoring also enables students to develop their own research skills in preparation for rewarding academic careers.
