The program will emphasize both teaching and consumer behavior research with a focus on preparing graduates for academia. Students will be exposed to a broad range of theory and methodology via rigorous course work as well as one-on-one interaction and collaboration with the department's active research faculty.
"The College of Business continues its rise to national prominence with the creation of this new doctoral degree program," said College of Business Dean Lynda de la Vina. "This program will not only lead to the growth of future business faculty members, but it will enhance the opportunities of marketing students at the graduate and undergraduate levels as well."
The College of Business offers doctoral programs in applied statistics and business administration. In addition to marketing, the business administration program offers doctoral degrees with emphases in accounting, finance, information technology, and organizational and management studies.
With the addition of the 20th doctoral program, UTSA offers 125 degrees including 62 bachelor's programs and 43 master's programs.
