A FULLY FUNDED PhD IN FRANCE - FIRST APPLICATION DEADLINE JANUARY 15 2023
ESSEC Business School is consistently ranked as one of the best business schools in Europe, with several of its Master's programs are ranked in the Top 5 worldwide (at the time of this writing: #4 in Finance, #4 in Business Analytics, #4 in Marketing Management, #3 in Strategy, #6 in Management). Its proximity to the Paris business hub and its reputation in executive education (ranked #5 in the world for its customized programs) also contribute to a vibrant atmosphere in constant contact with the business world.
Our faculty is world-renowned, highly international, and deeply committed to research and mentoring young scholars. Under their guidance, you will learn to ask insightful questions and design and execute studies that provide rigorous and creative answers.
Because top-notch research requires a true commitment free of financial worries, ESSEC Business 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. Unlike many schools, that tuition is not conditional on teaching for the first four years. It also offers the possibility of obtaining, at the same time as the PhD, a French doctorate. Knowledge of French is neither required nor expected to join the program.
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.
