We are now looking for candidates for September 2018 intake. Application starts in September 2017, with a deadline of January 2018.

If you are an intern, fresh graduate with little or no work or research experience or an experienced professional, and you would like to pursue an academic career as a management professor in leading business schools worldwide, explore the INSEAD PhD in Management (https://goo.gl/fQVhJ8). The INSEAD PhD is 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 campuses - France and Singapore (https://goo.gl/VeeH16), with an opportunity to spend up to a year of campus exchange with The Wharton School through the INSEAD-Wharton Alliance (https://goo.gl/cdcl6A); thus, allowing you to spend in three continents – Europe, Asia and North America.
INSEAD also provides you an opportunity to do world-class behavioural research in its state-of-the-art research lab in Paris (https://goo.gl/tqXrBi). Regardless of your chosen area, if you are interested in behavioural research, 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 an area of specialisation (https://goo.gl/euaTfF): Accounting, Decision Sciences, Finance, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Organisational Behaviour, Strategy, and Technology and Operations Management. Inherently interdisciplinary, the programme allows 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 is comprised of five years of full-time study (https://goo.gl/euaTfF). 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 research experts. 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 full funding for 5 years (https://goo.gl/VwkXO9) regardless of nationality, subject area, etc. This financial support 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 (https://goo.gl/EWRARV) at Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, MIT, Chicago Booth, Oxford, LBS, LSE, HKUST, CEIBS, National University of Singapore, etc.

To apply, submit your minimum admission requirements (https://goo.gl/MXdxJ7), along with a valid GRE or GMAT test. Neither a formal business education/Masters nor professional experience is compulsory.
