There is a potential crisis
(PDF) looming in business education. Unlike many other fields in higher education, demand for qualified faculty well outstrips supply. The result is a strong job market and high pay
In response to this potential shortage a number of things are being done. The accounting profession has recently started a program designed to increase the number of professors in the field called the Accounting Doctoral Scholars Program
. This program provides fellowships of $30,000 a year for 30 students. The AACSB
has created a website
to promote getting a PhD in business.
The PhD project
is designed to increase the number of minority PhD business professors.
Even some business professors have set up their own personal websites designed to explain why getting a PhD might be a good idea. See here
