Doctoral Degree Program

Temple University offers a Ph.D. in Business Administration with a concentration in Tourism and Sport. This program builds on the strength of two schools, the Fox School of Business and Management and the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management (STHM), which is home to the tourism and hospitality management and sport and recreation management faculty. Students take the core Ph.D. in Business Administration curriculum from the Fox School of Business while working on their concentration area with the faculty in the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management.

In addition to world-class faculty, dedicated seminar-based coursework, and a state-of-the-art facility, the Temple program offers doctoral students very competitive assistantship funding as well as the chance to work in the National Laboratory for Tourism & eCommerce (NLTeC) and the newly established Sport Industry Research Center (SIRC), which have projects focusing on a wide range of topics in tourism, hospitality, sport, and leisure industries.
