IUP started its second cohort of the PhD in Business program in fall 2020. This business doctorate is designed for working professionals who are looking to prepare for a business school professorship or advance to senior leadership positions. With weekend classes offered at the IUP Pittsburgh East campus, it is the first part-time business PhD in Pennsylvania.

In the IUP Business PhD program, students will study in-depth concepts and apply their research under the guidance of experienced, expert faculty with a global perspective in the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology.

Eberly College holds accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) a distinction held by only 5 percent of business schools worldwide.
