Student Testimonials

What our current and recent students say about the program   

“Come to Maryland if you want to do rigorous, interdisciplinary work. The faculty have backgrounds in economics, sociology, history, and political science. This type of diversity is unique”      Seth Carnahan

 

“The program believes strongly in collaboration both within and beyond our borders and our community put our money where our mouths are to enable students to do so”      Robert Vesco

 

“The program offers a great balance between structure and freedom, providing you with fundamentals, but also allowing freedom to explore and pursue your own personal interests. If you are looking to explore your interests within a collaborative and supportive environment, our program could be a perfect fit for you.”      Elad Sherf

 

“Being part of the PhD program at Maryland is a unique experience. The program encourages student-student collaborations as much as student-faculty collaborations, provides numerous formal and informal opportunities to present and discuss your research and the wide diversity of faculty background helps a student to investigate a problem from various perspectives.”      Siddharth Sharma

 

“The faculty is committed to nurture our professional identities as independent scholars. And to develop our emergent ideas, we are encouraged to work with and learn from different faculty members throughout our tenure in the program. To me, this is an important aspect of my development as a management scholar.”      Elijah Wee

 

“You'll be a good fit here if you want to forge your own path while being fully committed to engagement with others. That means sometimes thinking just as hard about your colleagues' research as your own, with the assurance that they will do the same for you; it's how we move each other forward”      Bryan Stroube
