[00:00:00.570]Hello, I'm Janet Near, Associate Dean
[00:00:03.510]for Faculty and Research in the College
[00:00:05.280]of Business at the University of Nebraska Lincoln.
[00:00:08.310]Part of my job is to coordinate our two PhD programs.
[00:00:12.150]We offer both a PhD in economics and a PhD
[00:00:15.600]in business, with specialization in five fields of study.
[00:00:18.804](bright corporate music)
[00:00:20.520]About 80% of our recent graduates have become professors.
[00:00:24.480]Our remaining graduates are employed as consultants
[00:00:27.780]or economists in government agencies or business firms.
[00:00:31.710]As you know, professors spend a lot of their time teaching.
[00:00:36.180]However, what you may not know
[00:00:38.430]is that they also do research.
[00:00:40.680]They use databases, experiments, surveys, or simulations
[00:00:45.420]to conduct and publish research within their fields.
[00:00:49.080]If you like to teach new ideas to others, read articles,
[00:00:53.280]write papers, solve math or statistical questions,
[00:00:56.670]and focus on long-term projects with big goals,
[00:01:00.510]becoming a professor is the career path for you.
[00:01:03.373](bright corporate music)
[00:01:05.520]The goal of our PhD programs is
[00:01:07.290]to help students learn the skills they need
[00:01:09.570]to become effective teachers and productive researchers.
[00:01:13.290]Students receive personalized support from faculty
[00:01:16.530]while working on innovative research projects.
[00:01:19.740]This one-on-one assistance will help you gain the research
[00:01:22.590]and teaching skills required to find a job
[00:01:25.740]as a university professor or as an economist
[00:01:29.070]in a government agency or business firm.
[00:01:31.464](bright corporate music)
[00:01:32.970]The starting salary depends on the field
[00:01:35.550]or discipline you choose to study.
[00:01:38.460]Our recent graduates have a 100% placement rate.
[00:01:42.439](bright corporate music)
[00:01:44.670]At Nebraska, PhD students serve as a research assistant or
[00:01:48.570]a teaching assistant each semester.
[00:01:51.030]They earn a stipend, health insurance,
[00:01:53.190]and other benefits for their work.
[00:01:55.320]Their tuition costs are paid by the university
[00:01:57.990]and they are eligible for additional fellowship funding,
[00:02:01.500]which is similar to a scholarship.
[00:02:04.080]Lincoln is a safe and livable city of about 300,000 people
[00:02:08.490]with a low cost of living, so fellowship dollars stretch
[00:02:12.300]farther than they would in other locations.
[00:02:15.510]Both of our PhD programs are full-time and residential,
[00:02:19.350]with in-person classes on campus.
[00:02:22.410]Most students take a comprehensive exam
[00:02:24.450]in their major fields and write a book-length dissertation.
[00:02:28.380]All this takes about four to five years to complete.
[00:02:32.580]Students who previously completed graduate courses
[00:02:35.520]toward a master's degree, MBA, or MPA may count
[00:02:40.230]those credit hours toward their PhD.
[00:02:43.710]All the fields within our PhD programs require
[00:02:46.530]an undergraduate degree and either a GRE or GMAT score.
[00:02:51.840]Some fields require a master's degree
[00:02:54.060]or work experience, but this varies by field.
[00:02:57.029](bright corporate music)
[00:03:01.590]International applicants should submit
[00:03:04.230]a TOEFL score as well.
[00:03:06.750]Our PhD program in business and our PhD program
[00:03:10.530]in economics are both approved
[00:03:12.630]as STEM-designated degree programs.
[00:03:16.050]Under the Optional Practical Training Program,
[00:03:19.590]international students who graduate from the program
[00:03:22.200]may stay in the United States and receive training
[00:03:25.590]through work experience for up to 12 months.
[00:03:29.040]They can also remain for an additional 24 months
[00:03:32.730]on an OPT STEM extension.
[00:03:35.568](bright corporate music)
[00:03:36.930]To contact us for more information
[00:03:39.120]about our economics and business PhD programs,
[00:03:50.400]We look forward to talking with you about how a PhD
[00:03:53.670]from the University of Nebraska Lincoln College
[00:03:56.610]of Business can help you reach your career goals.
