Point of view

Considering my a-typical background (philosophy) and profile, ESCP Europe's PhD programme was for me the perfect combination of open-mindedness - essential ! - and high level training for conducting cutting-edge research on today's major organizational issues. Between the moment I began my PhD and the moment I defended my dissertation it continuously adapted to the growing and evolving needs of PhD students in a globalized and increasingly challenging academic world in a uniquely supportive and constructive environment. It is a space of freedom allowing for unique voices to find themselves and emerge.

Students - ESCP Europe Doctoral Programme


The Ph.D. programme of ESCP Europe at the Paris campus aims at preparing research-active professors for high-level management academic institutions.

The programme, whose core values are based on an active participation of the students in their training as well as on a personalized student track, consists of the following teachings: a general methodological approach to research, a theoritical and methodological specialization as well as a teacher-training course through direct involvement in diverse ESCP Europe programmes.

The students of the programme, who are closely linked to the research and teaching activities of the faculty members, are given three years to fully conduct their personal research project.

These three years are an opportunity for them to prepare their future entry into the world of international academics by the means of publications and participations in scientific events.
