Admission and Finance

Financial Support

We admit students only if we can offer, or they have independently secured, full financial aid for five years, i.e., full tuition, health insurance, and a stipend of at least $30,000 per year.

For more information on financial support, please visit the Doctoral Program’s Tuition and Financial Planning page.

Admission Standards

The admission standards of the Accountancy Doctoral Program are high.

We typically expect that the student has demonstrated competence in quantitative methods through prior training in economics, econometrics, statistics, and mathematics (linear algebra, calculus, real analysis).

In the past, students recommended for admission typically have GMAT score in excess of 700 and an average GPA in excess of 3.5.

We rarely admit students who do not hold a master degree in the related field (statistics, economics, finance, and accounting). We also prefer that admitted students (including foreign nationals) have a degree (undergraduate or graduate) from a U.S. institution.
