The PhD Programme
The PhD Programme at NHH is a 4-year fully funded programme, which combines an intensive course component with research and relevant work experience, preparing the school's graduates for competitive careers towards national and international academic institutions and industry.
The PhD candidates will be included in a highly stimulating and rewarding research environment, working closely with faculty members and other PhD research scholars at the department. The candidates receive feedback on their work through regular interaction with their supervisor and other faculty members during seminars. PhD research scholars are expected to participate actively in faculty and research seminars, as well as in workshops. The place of work will be at NHH in Bergen where the candidates will receive their own office space in their department.
The scholarship include 25 % teaching and/or research assistance responsibilities. The programme gives preference to applicants who submit relevant research proposals that fit best the research interests of the department's research interests. Available resources for supervision will be emphasized and considered. As the school aspires gender balance and diversity, female applicants will be given preference if applicants are otherwise equally qualified.
