The strongest applicants possess relevant work experience. The evaluation for admission is on a competitive basis. The doctoral committee in the Department of Information Systems will review each candidate’s profile. Strong academic credentials, intellectual curiosity and commitment are important criteria for admission to ensure a good fit between the student's goals and the department.
