Message from the Dean of the PhD Program
Professor, Vice-Dean of the PhD ProgramA PhD is a transformative journey through which bright, talented, and motivated people who excel in the role of knowledge consumers become knowledge producers. As a community of current and future scholars, the ESSEC PhD program prepares you for becoming an active player in the international academic community through developing cutting-edge research. The program is full-time, entirely in English, meeting the highest international standards. Here are some of the reasons why you will want to consider undertaking this journey with us:
Our faculty includes leading scholars in all areas of Ph.D. specialization. The faculty is deeply committed to research and to mentoring future scholars who, in their turn, will become academics at excellent universities and business schools.
ESSEC is a leading global business school (ranked #3 for its MiM Program by the Financial Times) whose triple location (France, a Singapore and Morocco), an international network of outstanding partner institutions offer ample opportunities to engage in exchanges with the larger academic community. Our location in the suburbs of Paris provides easy access to one of the world’s most vibrant cities.
We offer outstanding financial conditions to people of various backgrounds and from around the world: scholarships covering tuition fees and generous living stipends (23,000 euros/year). We also offer generous support for participation in international conferences (5 over the course of your studies, provided you are presenting a paper), for external doctoral consortia and courses, and for exchange visits to renowned institutions.
The school also offers the possibility of obtaining, at the same time as the PhD, a Doctorat (French standard)."
