well it depends on a lot of variables, like how good of a students you are, what school your attending, your career path etc… like for me im going to for a double major in business managment and psychology. it dpends on the requirements of the major. for me i take my standard bachelors degree and if my grades are good enough i’m able to skip right to my PhD, but the average PhD can take anywhere from 3-5 years to complete but all the hard work is DEFINETELY worth it in the end!

If you manage your time well, perhaps 16 months.

I have a PhD in Business Administration. My degree is in Finance, but degrees are also offered in Management, Marketing, Operations Research, Strategy and Accounting.

Finance students usually finish in four or five years. Management students usually take another two years.

Technically, a master’s degree is not needed before getting in — but Business Schools are harder to get into than any other discipline (the year I applied, there were almost 300 applications for Finance and nine were accepted — management is only a little easier to get into than finance). Many of the management students had an MBA or a graduate degree in a related field (like psychology).

Typically, students take two or three years of classes. After the second year, there is a written exam (mine was two days). After the third or fourth year, there is an oral exam. Then comes the dissertation and the defense.

you should only do this if you really want to do research.

Taranto is right. Do it only if you want to do research. A Ph.D in management is absolutely useless for getting a real world job. Getting an MBA will give you a better edge.
