Pioneer Your Industry or Launch Your Own Venture with Liberty’s PhD in Organization and Management – Entrepreneurship

Do you want to reach the pinnacle of your profession? Perhaps a PhD program is something that you’ve been considering, but you haven’t been able to find the right fit. You’re ambitious – you see opportunities that others don’t. You enjoy taking informed risks in business, and a PhD program with an entrepreneurial focus is something that interests you.

Let’s face it: not all entrepreneurs have PhDs. Some people are born with an inherent knack for realizing business opportunities, tactfully managing finances and resources, and flipping overlooked ventures into impressive business empires. If you already have these skills, our PhD program can further hone them. Better yet, our organization and management PhD in entrepreneurship can also unlock considerable earning potential. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that people who have doctoral degrees typically earn about 22% more than people who only have master’s degrees.*

Earning a PhD can help you command respect among peers, superiors, and hiring managers. If you think having the title “Doctor” in front of your name can be a difference-maker, you’re right. What you may not know, however, is that a PhD in Organization and Management – Entrepreneurship from Liberty University can be an even bigger difference-maker.
