Campus 4 years August 2017 Norway Oslo

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.) [+]

Top Part time PhD Degrees in Finance in Asia. 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.

PhD in Finance

Stockholm School of Economics
Campus August 2017 Sweden Stockholm

The SSE PhD Program in Finance (240 ECTS) follows the standard US format: rigorous coursework in the first two years, and independent work on research projects that will make up the doctoral dissertation in the last two years. [+]

The SSE PhD program in Finance is a North American-style program with around 25 doctoral students. The course work part of the program is integrated in the Economics PhD Program: In the first one and a half semesters, finance PhD students take courses Mathematics, Econometrics, Micro- and Macroeconomics, all offered within the framework of the Stockholm Doctoral Program in Economics, Econometrics and Finance (SDPE). In the latter half of their second semester, students begin reading core finance courses. In their second year, students take further core finance courses and can choose among several shorter mini courses, covering more specialized area in finance. Alternatively, students may also take one or the other second-year PhD course in economics. In the second year, students also begin with their dissertation research under the supervision of an SSE faculty member. To help students find a dissertation subject some courses include term papers. The finance seminar series, of high international standard, is another source for discovering interesting research ideas. Presenting and discussing research at (internal) workshops - and possible conferences - is also considered an integral part of writing a dissertation. Students are expected to complete their thesis during their fourth or fifth year. Prerequisites To be eligible for admission, we require the following: 1) A university level degree 2) At least three semesters of economics or finance courses (90 ECTS) including a thesis worth at least 15 ECTS 3) One year of Master level studies or the equivalent. We are looking for academic excellence and for students who are well prepared for a PhD program in financial economics. Therefore, you are welcome to apply if you are studying in the first year of a MSc program. We may also admit students who for instance have a Bachelor’s degree in economics or finance and in addition have one to two years of coursework in mathematics and statistics at the advanced Bachelor level. We will also consider students with a very strong record from a four-year university program. For SSE MSc students, there is the possibility of a parallel intake. First year SSE MSc students can apply, and if accepted join the PhD program after their completed first year. All non SSE applicants to the Finance Program are required to take the general GRE test (Graduate Record Exam) (institution code 7016, department code 4102). The GMAT test may be taken instead, but the GRE is preferable. These test results have a validity of maximum 5 years. It's also important to have a sufficient level of English to be able to participate. If you are a native English speaker or have undertaken a university study program in English, you do not need to take any language test. However, all other applicants will need to test their English proficiency. We prefer that you take the TOEFL test, but the IELTS test may also be taken. Please provide the score and a copy of the official test result attested (verified to be a copy of a true original and signed) by two people. Language test results have a validity of maximum 4 years. There is no minimum score requirement for any of the tests. Financial Support The Stockholm School of Economics does not charge any tuition for its PhD programs and offers funding for graduate studies. All PhD students admitted receive a scholarship for their first year to cover living costs. The current scholarship amount is 13 000 SEK per month. A student who receives a scholarship for the first year of study may expect the scholarship to be renewed for the second year provided that the course requirements for the first year are fulfilled.
