Current PhD students

More than half the Beedie School of Business PhD Students originate from outside Canada. The student body represents great cultural diversity. The students possess knowledge, skills and experience from a wide range of industries including Economics, Finance, Psychology, Information Technology, Computing Science, Biological Science, Engineering and Fine Arts.

This wealth of experience is complemented by the PhD program which offers tailored coursework in an environment conducive to the development of research portfolios. Students are mentored one on one with the Beedie faculty members facilitating the research efforts of both.
