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.

A valuable collaboration with research at KEDGE

During their doctoral studies at KEDGE, and depending on their area of academic interest, doctoral students are closely involved in KEDGE research projects. Our research professors are organised into 5 Centres of Excellence and 3 Centres of Expertise

In addition, KEDGE's doctoral programme offers extensive training in research methods and pedagogy. Indeed, students are encouraged to participate regularly in research seminars, and are required to teach in undergraduate and masters courses, mainly in English.
