The UofL College of Business is home of a unique doctoral program that is structured to provide a multidisciplinary understanding of the role of entrepreneurship in our society.  The UofL entrepreneurship doctoral program is not the only program in the world, but there is no other program similar to it.  If you are interested in launching an academic career dedicated to developing and disseminating new knowledge, we invite you to consider what our program has to offer.

The next cohort we admit will begin the program in August 2017. The proper time to apply to join that cohort is in the Fall of 2016. At that time you should  go to and follow the instructions. Initial acceptances will likely be made in early February 2017.  If you have any questions, contact the PhD program director, James Fiet, at (502) 645-2536 or email him at
