Toulouse School of Management (TSM) is a French, public, international, research-intensive school founded in 1955. TSM offers an intensive doctoral programme for individuals interested in conducting independent research. Our programme combines the best of theory, practice and research methods with scholarly integrity. The courses are accompanied by research practice. Graduates pursue careers in leading universities and business schools, policy-oriented institutions and private firms.
This training immerses Ph.D candidates in all aspects of academic life. They contribute to original research, they make presentations at international academic conferences, they organise seminars, and teach at undergraduate and occasionally postgraduate level. They are encouraged to participate to international visiting periods.
To follow international best practices, research at TSM begins in the second year of the Master, with a dedicated 2-year research programme.
The later years of the doctoral programme are dedicated to original research and the creation of a Ph.D dissertation. Students are given the opportunity to develop their own rigorous and groundbreaking ideas.
Ph.D. candidates participate in the life of the department, including seminars. They also present their research work in junior and senior workshops, and, finally, defend their dissertations.
