I am writing to let you know that the doctoral program in management at
Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia is recruiting
students for the 2015-2016 academic year.  If you have qualified students,
either undergraduate or with a master’s degree, who are considering
pursuing a doctoral degree in areas such as Management, Entrepreneurship,
Industrial-Organizational Psychology, or Social Psychology, I ask that you
let them know about the opportunities in the School of Business at VCU.  We
will consider highly qualified students who come from areas outside of

VCU offers a Ph.D. in Business through the Department of Management. Our
concentration areas in management reflect two complimentary and overlapping
tracks: organizational behavior and human resource management. Course work
for doctoral students represents a balance of organizational behavior and
human resource management topics including attitudes and motivation,
emotions, teams, leadership, organizational culture, organizational
staffing, compensation, performance management, meta-analysis, strategic
human resource management, and corporate strategy. Doctoral students also
receive extensive training in research methods and statistics. Faculty
research interests reflect a similar balance between OB and HR topics.
Faculty publications have appeared in *Academy of Management Journal*, *Academy
of Management Review*, *Journal of Applied Psychology*, *Journal of
Organizational Behavior*, *Journal of Management*, *The Leadership
Quarterly*, *Organizational Research Methods*, *Personnel Psychology*,
