Department of Business and Management Science

The Department of Business and Management Science (BMS) is looking for highly motivated and talented individuals. The PhD specialisation at BMS aims to give a solid training in using rational, systematic, science-based techniques to inform and improve business decisions, making use of empirical and theoretical methods reflecting the state of the art in the field. The specialisation offers three directions:

Business Economics (BE) combines economic analysis with the practical aspects of business. It is distinguished from the wider field of business administration by greater emphasis on economic theory and econometric analysis.

Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment (ENE) covers core topics like energy markets, natural resources management and environmental subjects focusing on climate change. ENE offers empirical research to support decision-making by government and industry. Research within ENE draws upon tools from management science, finance and theories for dynamic decision making under uncertainty.

Management Science (MS) is the application of tools, such as operational research, simulation, optimisation, game theory, econometrics/statistics and applied mathematics to help decision making in businesses and government. The field uses applied and theoretical studies, with a focus on logistics, energy, health, election methods, the environment, natural resources, fisheries and transportation.

Please find further information about the Department of Business and Management Science here.

The PhD Programme

The PhD Programme at NHH is a four year fully funded programme, which combines an intensive course component with active research and teaching/work experience, preparing the school's graduates for competitive careers at national and international academic institutions and industry.

PhD Research Scholars receive their own office space within their department and enjoy a highly stimulating and rewarding research environment. The PhD Research Scholars receive feedback on their work through close interaction with their supervisor/s, and faculty during regular seminars.

PhD Research Scholars are required to combine their studies and research with 25% work as a teaching and/or research assistant during their employment period.

Preference will be given qualified applicants with research proposals that fit best with the research interests of the Department of Business and Management Science. Preference will also be given to female applicants in the event of equivalent qualifications.

The annual salary is currently 435 100 NOK gross (equivalent to approximately € 48 000 or US dollar 50 500). This salary ensures a fair standard of living in Norway, and is subject to Norwegian taxes and benefits, including health care provision.

Start date in August 2017.
