Doctorate (PhD)

Melbourne Business School is committed to providing outstanding research training for the world’s most ambitious minds.
Entry Requirements

Entry to this program is based on a competitive selection process, with only a small cohort (of 12 – 15 students) admitted each year.

Applicants are required to complete the online University of Melbourne Application form and attach:

  • Evidence of completion of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree with a major in management, marketing or a cognate background with a University of Melbourne equivalent weighted average mark of at least H2A (75%).; and
  • A personal statement of no more than 1000 words that addresses the following questions:
    • Why do you want to pursue a doctorate in Marketing?
    • Why do you want to pursue your doctorate at the Melbourne Business School?
    • What experiences have you had that demonstrate your ability to perform well in a doctoral program?
    • What are your areas of interest in the field of Marketing? What phenomena would you like to study? What questions do you think are particularly interesting?; and
  • A curriculum vitae that lists prior research and professional experience; and
  • Two referee reports outlining suitability to undertake research studies.
    • At least one referee report must be from an academic source. The reports should focus on the student’s ability to undertake research studies.
    • Applicants who have graduated from the University of Melbourne within the 5 years prior to the date of application are exempt from submitting referee reports
  • A recent Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test score. The minimum GMAT required to be considered competitive is a score of 640. Obtaining this score does not guarantee selection. The average score for successful candidates in the last few years has been 680. The following applicants are exempt from submitting a GMAT or GRE test score:
    • Those who have completed an undergraduate degree in Australia or New Zealand within the 18 months prior to the date of application; or
    • Those who face significant humanitarian issues.
  • Applicants are not required to contact prospective supervisors at this stage. Supervision arrangements will be confirmed prior to progression to the PhD component of the program.

    Selection criteria and process

    All applications for graduate research at the Melbourne Business School must foremost comply with the University’s minimum English Language Requirements. For those applicants seeking to meet these requirements by one of the standard tests approved, the minimum performance band 7 is required.

    The number of applications usually significantly exceeds the places available – the selection process is therefore highly competitive. The Selection Committee will rank all eligible applicants and invite shortlisted applicants to interview. Final offers will be made only to those that rank highly. In ranking applications, the Selection Committee will consider all the entry requirements listed above and interview performance.
