• Ph.D. students in management and related fields were surveyed about experiences.
• Perceptions of preparedness to perform future research activities was assessed.
• Ph.D. program focus on theory vs. practice was evaluated.
• Differences in experience and Ph.D. program focus varied across sub-disciplines.
• Specific research experiences were identified as contributing to preparedness.
Scholarly research is important for the future career success of doctoral students. Additionally, today's doctoral students will drive the direction of tomorrow's management research. Therefore, it is vital to assess the factors that contribute to producing doctoral program graduates who are prepared to conduct research. This study surveyed Ph.D. students in management and related programs regarding research experiences in graduate school, and program emphasis on scientific rigor versus practical relevance. Although results varied by sub-discipline, findings showed relationships between these factors and current research productivity and perceptions of preparedness for future research-oriented job activities. Among the experience factors contributing to these outcomes were conducting research as part of a team, generating one's own research ideas, and being involved in externally funded research. Overall findings also suggested that Ph.D. programs emphasize theory over practice. Opportunities for improving management doctoral education and closing the relevance vs. rigor gap are discussed.
