This paper discusses the design characteristics of a doctoral program in information systems at a university located in Western Pennsylvania. The program design includes unique characteristics that are intended to minimize the attrition rate among the students enrolled. The paper begins by discussing baseline statistics and reasons for attrition rates in doctoral programs. The focus thereafter is an overview of computer related doctoral programs that offer doctoral degrees in information systems. It concludes with a detailed description of the specific design attributes of the Doctor of Science program in Information Systems and Communications at Robert Morris University (RMU).
