While minorities are nearly a third of the U.S. population, African-Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans are estimated to be only four percent of the faculty of business schools nationwide, primarily because minorities do not apply to PhD programs
That’s part of the information students learned during the PhD Pipeline Opportunity workshop on November 29, 2011 in the College of Business Administration at Florida International University (FIU). The event was organized by Antoinette Smith, who teaches accounting and is the FIU leader of the program, a national initiative originating from Duke University.
