PhD in Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship

The Department of Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University provides a strong research environment, with numerous faculty members and PhD students working across nearly all relevant fields of the wider strategic management field. Three characteristics make the Department an excellent environment for high-quality candidates to pursue a PhD.

  • First, we pride ourselves in our excellent PhD placement record, and our graduates routinely find placements in top schools worldwide. Recent placements include Kellogg (Northwestern), Judge (Cambridge), Desautels (McGill), HEC Paris, ETH Zurich, Otto Besheim (WHU), and Moore (University of South Carolina).
  • Second, the department hosts specialists in a wide variety of methodological traditions, including survey and archival data analysis, longitudinal econometric analysis, meta-analysis, case studies, grounded theory, and fuzzy-set qualitative comparative analysis.
  • Third, our department is well-connected internationally. It structurally hosts visiting professors like Gerry George (Imperial) and Ed Zajac (Northwestern), and our own faculty have held visiting positions at schools like Imperial, Kellogg, MIT, and Wharton.

In short, the Department offers one of the most stimulating and productive environments for pursuing a PhD in Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship in Europe.

PhD research in the Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship group at the Rotterdam School of Management is expected to take place within one of four main research themes that represent currently ongoing research:

  1. Corporate Entrepreneurship
  2. Strategic Renewal
  3. Corporate Governance and Competitiveness
  4. Global Strategy

Although research that cuts across these four themes is encouraged, candidates are expected to express and explain their preferences for one or more research themes in the cover letter of their application.  This document provides short descriptions of these themes as well as exemplary research projects within and across these themes.
