KEDGE's PhD Programme: a journey towards academic excellence
KEDGE Business School's PhD Programme enables scholars to become future faculty members in leading international business schools and universities. During their studies, doctoral students undertake research projects leading to academic publications in internationally renowned journals and gain teaching experience in higher education.
Following the 3-article model, a PhD thesis at KEDGE consists of three related academic papers, which are presented at leading conferences and ultimately submitted to high-quality academic journals.
