PhD in Entrepreneurship


The UofL College of Business is the home to a doctoral program that is designed to prepare and train graduates for a career as an entrepreneurship scholars and educator. 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.

Our world-class, research-oriented faculty members from a variety of entrepreneurship-related disciplines in the College of Business deliver our seminars. After two years of entrepreneurship-focused seminars, doctoral students progress into candidacy, working on their dissertation research. It is expected that students will complete the program in four years. Financial support includes tuition remission and an attractive stipend and is guaranteed for four years with the possibility of a fifth year.

Cohorts are admitted to this program every two years, and our next cohort will begin in 2022.  We invite interested individuals to prepare their applications for the August 2022 cohort.  Applications can be submitted through the following link and will be accepted through  January 31, 2022.

If you have questions, contact the PhD program director, Daniel Holt, at (502) 852-0127 or via email at daniel.holt@louisville.edu.
