Ph.D. in Business Administration - Accounting
The program offers competitive financial aid packages to successful applicants, and contingent on satisfactory progress, all resident students in good standing generally continue to receive financial support to cover five years of study. Financial assistance beyond the 5th year of study is rare and requires full faculty approval. The usual Ph.D. student appointment is for half-time service (20 hours per week) at an expected salary of approximately $25,000 and payment of program related tuition costs and fees. Half-time work appointments take the form of teaching assistantship (TA) or research assistantship (RA).
TA appointments involve instructing an undergraduate class, typically at the introductory levels, or assisting a professor's class with various activities such as grading and holding office hours for questions involving homework and/or cases. RA appointments involve assisting faculty research projects, which also helps Ph.D. students to learn the research process. Most students generally experience both TA and RA appointments during the course of the program. The University of Florida provides some support for student health insurance.
