Apply for the CU Diverse Doctorates in Business (DDB) Program

Participants will gain understanding of research and academic career paths within business schools

October 12, 2020

Are you an undergraduate student interested in contributing to the inclusivity and diverse representation among faculty in business schools? If so, we encourage you to apply to the Diverse Doctorates in Business (DDB) program.

To have truly inclusive business school programs for an increasingly diverse student body, students of color should be able to see themselves in the faculty. Nationally, however, just 4% of U.S. business school professors are Black Americans, Latinx Americans, or Native Americans. The DDB program is an effort to change that.

What You Need to Know

  • The DDB was formed by the deans of the business schools at CU Denver, CU Boulder, and CU Colorado Springs.
  • The program aims to attract a diverse group of undergraduate students—particularly women and underrepresented minorities—who are interested in careers as business professors.
  • The virtual program is two hours.
  • Students will gain an awareness and understanding of research at the doctoral level.
  • Students will learn about academic career paths within business schools

The DDB program will be held over Zoom on Friday, Nov. 13, from 9 – 11:30 a.m. Applications are available online, and the deadline is Oct. 20.
