Doctorate in Business in Europe

Find PhD Programs in Business in Europe 2017

Business

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

People who earn a PhD in business, economics and administration typically go on to teach in universities or perform statistical research for large organizations. Moreover, anyone with a PhD degree has the right to be addressed as "Dr."

In all, there are over 4000 Higher Education Institutions in Europe offering a wide range of courses at Bachelor, Masters and Doctorate level. With more and more of these organizations offering English as the language of education for at least some of their degree programs, universities in Europe are now of higher quality than ever before. Universities in Europe offer a friendly welcome to foreign students and to give a course of knowledge that meets their profession needs in today’s global demand.

PhD Programs in Business in Europe 2017. The PhD program in Law and Business, taught in Italian, is aimed at offering an advanced three year course of study that combines both theoretical and practical aspects of legal and regulatory issues regarding markets and business from a national, European, international and comparative perspective.

The program, which addresses the demand for highly qualified professionals, ensures that doctoral candidates reach an appreciable level of academic and research autonomy along with an adequate capacity for criticism and analysis. Through research, academic activities and participation in seminars and courses, students will work on obtaining a solid academic grounding common to all areas of specialization. Therefore, PhD students must be able to investigate and analyze in depth, in an interdisciplinary manner, the theoretical and empirical research topics covered by the program.

PhD in International Relations

Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University (FSV UK)
Campus Full time 4 years October 2017 Czech Republic Prague

Doctoral studies at the FSS are primarily research-based. However, students are also expected to attend a certain number of graduate seminars and lectures (the exact number depends on the subject), so it is not possible for students to complete their doctorate by research alone. [+]

Structure of classes Doctoral studies at the FSS are primarily research-based. However, students are also expected to attend a certain number of graduate seminars and lectures (the exact number depends on the subject), so it is not possible for students to complete their doctorate by research alone. Advanced full-time students are also expected to participate in undergraduate courses as lecturers. Students are assigned a thesis supervisor who guides their research, and advises them on the structure of their thesis during their write-up. At the end of their studies students take an oral exam and defend their thesis before a panel of academics. Although it is usually possible to write your doctoral thesis in English or German, Czech remains the official language of instruction for most classes held by at the Faculty, and not all departments are able to offer graduate classes in another language. We therefore advise any applicants who are concerned about this issue to contact their prospective department to find out the precise situation that applies to their particular field of study. Period of study Doctoral studies may be conducted either full-time or part-time. Full-time study ("internal" study) usually takes four years. Part-time study ("external" study) usually takes five years. Internal students who do not complete their thesis within the specified three years are usually allowed to continue their studies as external students, if they wish. External studies can usually be extended up to a maximum of eight years. Application procedures Generally, all applications must include the following: official application form (you can fill either the application form SEVT 49 146 0), or apply online Curriculum Vitae (resume) notarised copy of Master's degree diploma, an official translation into Czech (if it was issued in a different language), and (if you completed your Master's degree abroad) a document from the Czech authorities to say that your diploma is recognised in the Czech Republic (so-called "nostrifikace") Applicants who are in their final year of a Master's degree programme may submit documents to show their expected date of graduation. Applicants who have applied to the Czech authorities for "nostrifikace", but have not yet received a decision, may submit documents to show that a decision is pending. In all such cases, however, certificates must be submitted as soon as they become available. Entrance exams All applicants who submit the required materials by the deadline will be invited to sit an entrance exam in Prague, usually in June. Requirements for the entrance exam vary widely according to subject, but in most cases, some knowledge of the Czech language is expected. Foreign nationals who have not previously studied in the Czech Republic may be required to take an additional test to demonstrate their Czech language ability, where this is relevant to the planned course of study. Exceptions to the rules regarding language may be possible in some cases, but they cannot be expected as a matter of course, and they must be negotiated in advance with the relevant teaching department. Please note that there will be no mandatory entrance exam as a part of the admission process to the Economics programme with a tuition. The admission committee will decide on the basis of obtained documents and can ask for supplying more of them if necessary. There is no application fee. Scholarships and financial aid Although Charles University has a very limited number of scholarships for internal doctoral students (both Czech and foreign), applicants should be aware that this university scholarship is intended only as a top-up fund (on average 6300 CZK per month for first-year students, which is approximately 230 EUR per month, and 7600 CZK for students in the later stages of their study). All successful applicants for internal doctoral studies are automatically considered for the university scholarship. No additional application is necessary. International Relations The basis for the entrance examination procedure is a written, thought out proposal for a dissertation. The project should be submitted by the applicant in printed form to CU Faculty of Social Sciences (UK Fakulta socialnich ved) Smetanovo nabrezi 6, 116 00 Praha 1, and also in electronic form to phd.mv@seznam.cz, both no later than two weeks before the convening of the entrance exams. Applicants for the doctoral program in the area of International Relations may choose a dissertation topic from a list of priority topics provided by the department for the given academic year (these will be on the Department MV IPS webpage by the 31st of March, 2011). If an applicant would like to work on a topic not included on the list, he/she must present a written statement from his/her potential dissertation advisor agreeing to it. This written statement must be delivered to the departmental council no later than one week prior to the entrance exam interview. The applicant must be a graduate from a Master’s level form of study. The applicant must submit proof of his/her certification of English and his/her proposal for a dissertation before the entrance exam interview. Throughout the course of the interview, the examination commission will investigate and judge the background and motivation for the research work, the quality of the project proposal, and general knowledge of the field. The entrance examination interview is valued in terms of points. The departmental council determines the minimum score necessary for the acceptance of the proposal for study in the given academic year. The score of the project reflects and measures the compatibility of the submitted project with the themes listed by the Department of International Relations as being a priority for the given academic year. Contents of the Departmental Exams questions from the developments in International Relations in the 20th Century and current international policies questions ascertaining one’s orientation within the basic literature on International Relations theory questions ascertaining the level of the thesis submitted in the project Current Priority areas in Doctoral Studies theory of International Relations security and strategy studies European studies history of International Relations Evaluation Criteria for the Entrance Exams During the entrance exam, every applicant answers the questions asked of him/her by the examination commission (see the contents of the entrance exams above), earning a total score of maximum 50 points: for questions regarding the development of International Relations and current problems in International Relations, the applicant may earn a maximum of 10 points, for questions regarding theory of International Relations, the applicant may earn a maximum of 10 points, for the evaluation of the project and questions ascertaining the level of the project, the applicant may earn a maximum of 20 points. A bonus (maximum 10 points) will be considered in the case of publications (articles or contributions) concerning the theme of the dissertation. The examination commission will write up an evaluation containing the applicant’s score. The applicant’s ranking will be based on this score. A helpful reference for applicants regarding the knowledge requirements is the prepared themes for the state graduation exams towards a Master’s in International Relations, which also contains a list of basic literature.

BI Norwegian Business School are currently offering full-time PhD scholarships. The Scholarships are granted for four years and pays NOK 448.000 per year (approximately Euro 48.300.) [+]

BI Norwegian Business School are currently offering full-time PhD scholarships. The Scholarships are granted for four years and pays NOK 448 000 per year (approximately Euro 48 300.) BI offers a full-time doctoral programme leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD). We admit highly qualified candidates that develop into researchers in the course of the programme. With a PhD from BI Norwegian Business School, you will be well positioned for a career in academia Our PhD programme consists of six different specialisations. The specialisations are Economics, Finance, Marketing, Strategic Management, Leadership & Organization, and Innovation & Entrepreneurship. As a prospective candidate, you will apply for one of the specialisations. If admitted, you will take courses primarily in your field of study - your specialisation - and be supervised by faculty in this same field. This will help you to develop your research agenda and to progress into a researcher capable of producing research publishable in the top journals in your field. We are currently offering full-time PhD scholarships in Marketing, Strategy, and Leadership & Organization. Our school’s academic departments govern the specialisations in the PhD programme. In other words, the Finance Department runs the finance specialisation; The Strategy Department runs the strategy specialisation, and so on. Our academic departments have strong track records of producing research of high quality. The Finance Department is currently ranked 10th in Europe and 2nd in the Nordic countries based on research published in the top finance journals between 2005-2014. Progamme structure Course component To provide our candidates with the theoretical knowledge, empirical knowledge and methodological skills required to become successful researchers, the PhD programme consists of methodology courses, specialisation courses and elective courses. Seminars Our PhD candidates regularly attend research seminars. A research seminar is an event where the academic departments invite an internationally renowned researcher to present some of his/her ongoing research. This provides important exposure to the research frontier. PhD candidates who have finished their course work and have started to develop their own research agenda will also present their work at research seminars. PhD committees and pre-doctoral defense Our candidates have academic supervisors who help them develop as researchers. When the dissertation’s research questions are sufficiently well developed, the candidates will hold a pre-doctoral defense in front of a committee. This committee consists of professors from other universities, who will evaluate research progress and give advice on how best to move the research forward. The committee will assess whether the candidate is on track to the successful completion of the dissertation. Dissertation and final defense The PhD dissertation will provide contributions to the academic literature. PhD candidates from BI are expected to write a dissertation containing research that can be published in the leading academic journals of their field of specialisation. The PhD evaluation committee will have the final say on whether or not a dissertation is ready for public defense—meaning that the PhD candidate is ready to publicly defend his/her research in front of the PhD evaluation committee, other faculty, family and friends. PhD placement The dissertation is clearly an important outcome of several years of research work. However, the most important outcome for our PhD candidates is the employment opportunities that will be available after having defended their thesis. At BI, we emphasize placing our PhD candidates at excellent research universities. Past PhD candidates have been recruited by London Business School, University of Melbourne, University of Calgary, and Nanyang University, to name a few.
