We would like to invite PhD prospects to attend the Paris DocNet Recruitment Forum 2016 on Sept 15.
Meet admissions teams from INSEAD PhD and other leading doctoral in business programmes from the US and Europe during the recruiting fair. Participating schools in the past are Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, London Business, IESE Business School, etc. Visit http://www.insead.edu/phd/events/docnet/ for more information. Attending the fair is free.

If you are an intern, a fresh graduate with little or no work experience, or an experienced professional, and you would like to pursue a global career as a researcher and management professor in leading business schools, consider the highly integrated and diverse INSEAD PhD in Management (http://goo.gl/SXfpD2). The INSEAD PhD has been carefully designed to nurture high achievement through a unique international platform. Once you make it through the rigorous selection process, there are exciting challenges ahead.

The full-time doctoral degree in business is fully integrated across INSEAD's two comprehensive campuses - in France and in Singapore ( http://goo.gl/FzmYDO), with an opportunity to spend up to a year for campus exchange in North America with The Wharton School through the INSEAD-Wharton Strategic Alliance Exchange Programme (http://goo.gl/WHW1rE ). This is the only doctoral programme that allows you to spend your studies in three continents – Europe, Asia and North America.

INSEAD also provides you an opportunity to do world-class behavioural research at its state-of-the-art research facility in Paris (http://goo.gl/H6MqSp). Regardless of your chosen area, if you are interested in organisational and consumer behaviour, decision sciences, experimental economics and behavioural finance, among others, you can take advantage of this resource, which has set a benchmark for other business schools.

The methods of training and research are interdisciplinary and students get the opportunity to pursue one of eight areas of specialisation (http://goo.gl/ygKMn7): Accounting, Decision Sciences, Finance, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Organisational Behaviour, Strategy, and Technology and Operations Management. The inherently interdisciplinary areas of specialisation allow you to have a range of foundational and applied work. From an early stage, and throughout your doctoral study, you are encouraged to be actively involved in research activities across areas with your peers and faculty members.

The INSEAD PhD comprised of five years of full-time study ( http://goo.gl/ofpvJG). The first two years are dedicated to coursework, while the third to fifth years are dedicated to research and dissertation.

As a PhD student, you are exposed to cutting edge research methodologies and practice through a close working relationship with members of the faculty. The intimate size of the programme ensures critical faculty mentorship and research support, and the faculty is one of the most culturally and academically diverse. Unlike many other programmes, INSEAD seeks to admit research partners for its faculty, not research assistants.

All admitted students get paid to learn and do research. Full financial support is available ( http://goo.gl/nVjmFt) to all candidates for 5 years. This financial support or INSEAD Fellowship covers full tuition fee waiver, generous stipend, substantial research support and comprehensive health insurance coverage, and it is renewable every year based on satisfactory performance.

As many leading universities seek to internationalise both their curriculum and faculty, having an INSEAD PhD gives you a tremendous edge with its global format over most business schools. The result is that our graduates receive top placements ( http://goo.gl/37v14R) at Harvard, Stanford, MIT Sloan, Wharton, Chicago Booth, Oxford, LBS, LSE, HKUST, CEIBS, National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University, etc.

To apply, submit your minimum admission requirements (http://goo.gl/FE5KuI), along with a valid GRE or GMAT test. Neither a formal business education /Masters nor professional experience is compulsory. Online application will open in early Fall of the current year for the following year's intake.
