Earning a Ph.D. in the organization and strategy program at the University of Tennessee has been a tremendous opportunity. I am consistently guided towards a successful career in academia by a strong faculty team that invests time and energy into my development as a scholar. No school can guarantee my success, for I have to be willing to work hard; however, in the organization and strategy program, I have always been given the utmost opportunity to simply focus on working hard and learning. In addition, the students in the organization and strategy program are close-knit, and always willing to help each other. In my opinion, the qualities I have described are absolutely vital to picking a Ph.D. program that can help you achieve your potential. If I were to choose a program again, I would, without hesitation, still choose the University of Tennessee.
