The doctoral programme prepares candidates for conducting research in the area of management and business administration, as well as for applied and academic careers.

Our Ph.D. students are supervised across a set of specialties including:

Our Ph.D. candidates join a department related to their research area where they explore complex problems, including business, management, and social issues.

We welcome applicants who take their Ph.D. directly after graduation, but it is also possible to join the program with relevant business and/or academic experience.


The Ph.D. programme accepts students with a master degree from all domains of business and management master programs, such as marketing, management and leadership, finance, accounting, regional and environmental economics, international economics and business and business administration (MBA). Applicants holding a master degree in other areas (e.g. mathematics, physics, informatics, and different areas of engineering) can also be accepted after the special consideration of the management of the doctoral school.
