Etudiants - Programme Ph.D. ESCP Europe

Doing a Ph.D. is a great intellectual journey, and the foundation of a professional trajectory.  At ESCP Europe, we take these two pillars of any PhD project very seriously.  Our Ph.D programme offers a great environment to do your Ph.D.  Our Ph.D. students are provided not only with the indispensable academic and financial guidance but also with social and moral support.  Far beyond their viva, this supportive environment is a cornerstone for their academic identity.

Our programme fosters:

Diversity: our Ph.D. students constitute a diverse community in terms of nationality, gender, and professional experience. All types of methodological inclinations are most welcomed.  We value exchanges with PhD students from the Berlin campus and actively support international exposure of our PhD students.

Efficiency: more than 80% of our alumni take on an academic position after their Ph.D. Every year an average of 10 viva take place, the average length of a PhD in our programme is 4.2 years. 

Adaptability: we train our PhD students to become excellent scholars and teachers with a unique cursus developing academic writing skills, theorisation and analytical skills and pedagogical skills. For us it is important to provide our Ph.D. students with the equipment they need to become well-balanced academics.

Join our unique programme in the vibrant city of Paris and become part of our dynamic Ph.D. students’ community!

ESCP Europe est habilitée à délivrer le diplôme de Doctorat par le Ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche français, depuis 1er octobre 2012.
C'est la reconnaissance d'un travail de 10 ans durant lesquels ESCP Europe s’est investie avec rigueur dans la formation doctorale sur ses campus de Paris et de
Berlin. Parallèlement, ESCP Europe devient établissement-membre de l’Ecole Doctorale de Management Panthéon-Sorbonne avec l’Université Paris 1 (ED n°559).
Cette habilitation et accréditation viennent formaliser un processus de préfiguration de l’Ecole Doctorale mis en oeuvre depuis la constitution du pôle universitaire héSam.
