About the Programme


A PhD is an intellectual journey through which you will become a social scientist engaged in solving central puzzles related to the work of organizations and their people. This transformative experience is best undertaken under the attentive mentorship of established scholars, and in learning centers that offer generous conditions.

ESSEC Business School is among such scholarship centers. Our faculty is world-renowned, highly international, and deeply committed to research and to mentoring young scholars; under their guidance, you will learn how to ask insightful questions and how to design and execute studies that provide rigorous and creative answers. At the same time, our school offers full-tuition scholarships and a tax-free stipend covering living expenses so that, from day one, you can focus entirely on your research; it also offers the possibility of obtaining, at the same time as the PhD, a Doctorat ESSEC (French standard).

We are looking for bright, motivated young people from around the world, from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, aiming to become academics at excellent universities and business schools. I invite you to undertake the PhD journey in our school.

Professor, Dean of ESSEC PhD Program
