“Besides a course of high quality the programme gave me the opportunity to start my career as a professor within the programme « Grande Ecole ».
In addition, the efficient infrastructure and the curious students avid of knowledge enabled me to acquire new competences.
Finally, I would like to add that if the programme is very rich, it's due to the work of our multicultural and well united research team.”

ESCP Europe Ph.D.
The main goal of the Ph.D. programme is to help its students acquire the fundamental skills of a teacher-researcher. Through these teachings, students work towards their thesis, a research project of great importance and of the utmost quality. Apart from the dissertation work, the doctoral programme provides a general and thorough research training, a chosen field of specialization and a teaching and educational training, totalling 300 course hours.
The programme also includes exchanges during workshops and access to other resources, whether it be internal resources (ESCP Europe programmes) or external (external teachings and seminars, both nationally and internationally).
The programme works at promoting:
1. Philosophy of Science and Methodology (129 hours)
2. Theoretical and Methodological Specialization (60 hours)
This course varies according to the department and field and may be adapted to the student’s project. Its components can be part of the following aspects:
Thanks to this specialization, each student can define with their thesis and programme director a personalized programme. Students can also resort to personalized assistance, individually or in small groups, to a limit of 10 hours per student (in accordance with the thesis and programme directors’ opinion).
3. Educational Teachings (32.5 hours)
This course consists of the following:
4. Academic Publication (39 hours)
5. Becoming an Academic (30 hours)
Each of the five major courses must be validated with at least three assessment marks for each course. These marks can concern exams or class work.
The curriculum should preferably be completed in the first year and in any case must be completed in the two first years. It must therefore be validated at the end of the second year.
