Best Part time PhDs in Economics and Administration 2017. 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.

Interview The interview with an examination committee is intended to evaluate applicants’ research abilities, including an assessment of the proposed dissertation research project submitted by the applicant, and a review of the applicant's previous research. The candidate's motivation and overall maturity is considered as well. The interview serves also as an oral exam of the English language, testing the applicant's understanding of economic English. A very good knowledge of English is required for admission. The written tests account for a part of the overall result; the remaining points are allocated on the basis of the applicant's research abilities and previous research activity. During the application interview each applicant will be asked about whom she would like to have as an adviser for the doctoral studies. Therefore it is very much recommended that applicants try to arrange a potential adviser beforehand and to obtain an informal agreement about their willingness to serve as an advisor. It is also a very good idea to engage with the potential advisor while writing up the research proposal. The advisors should normally be from IES. Please see the lists of current faculty and external lecturers for inspiration. Admission process for English program with a tuition fee There is no entrance exam as a part of the admission process. The admission committee will evaluate your research proposal and decide on the basis of obtained documents and can ask for supplying more of them if necessary. The committee will meet in mid May.
