    Pros

    Students who pursue a Ph.D. in School of Business can get a good financial stipend ($30,000 / 12 months). The school will also cover all your insurance cost and all kinds of fees before your graduation. That's pretty generous, thus you don't need to worry about the living cost. Also, most placements of the graduate students are in academia, the universities can vary from U of Chicago to some local colleges, but most graduates can find a job in academia. If you have an interest in doing research in business and find a job in universities, P.h.D. in business program in a good choice.

    Cons

    In fact, the P.h.D. program is a fairly young program.
