PhD Program in Management

  Introductory session for new PhD students in Management on 02.10.2017, 15h00, at HS 2 (SOWI)

In our PhD program, emphasis is laid on preparing you to evaluate and reflect the state of knowledge in your particular field of research. Students work in small groups with a maximum of 20 students. In addition, they work with faculty members and with their colleagues on research projects to gain experiences in their field of study and increase skills and competences in their special field of interest. You will find a strong partnership with your supervisors, other faculty, and guest professors combined with the high level of diverse academic and cultural backgrounds of PhD students. The School of Management offers an atmosphere of close cooperation and intellectual challenges.

The research at our School of Management is strongly oriented towards five research centres and two research platforms:
