PhD Track PhD in Strategic Management & Entrepreneurship

To develop world-class academics pursuing high-impact research in Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship, we have developed a doctoral programme that combines deep-level understanding in core topics and thorough grounding in methodological design and analytical skills. Joining the PhD programme means joining a Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship group with a highly collaborative and cutting-edge research culture. The group harbors expertise in a broad range of topics: faculty members and PhD students work across nearly all relevant areas of the strategic management and entrepreneurship fields.

Throughout the programme, PhD students work closely with faculty on joint and supervised research. Teamwork offers candidates the opportunity to learn diverse research skills and become familiar with a range of debates in the field before selecting the focus of subsequent doctoral work. 

Excellent job opportunities: Alumni of the PhD programme hold academic positions in renowned academic institutes around the world, including Cambridge, ETH Zurich, HEC Paris, INSEAD, McGill University, the University of South Carolina, Renmin University, and Warwick Business School.
