PhD Programme (Doctor of Philosophy in Business Administration)

Academic excellence

From the very beginning, PhD students become part of a research-focussed Centre of Excellence, where they have the opportunity to work on research projects with faculty members. Since Kedge Business School is organised over several campuses, candidates once accepted will be located on the campus of their supervisor/supervisory team. Students are expected to be on campus on a regular basis.


Our faculty members enjoy a high level of academic success. The quality of our scholarly work is highlighted by our triple accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA). However, we do not rest on our laurels but continue to prepare for new challenges. This quest for innovation permeates our research as much as our other business school activities.

Faculty aim at the highest standards of academic excellence and have published in top-tier journals such as:

  • Academy of Management Review,
  • Organization Studies,
  • Journal of World Business,
  • Business Ethics Quarterly,
  • Journal of Business Ethics

Professorial Supervisors

The programme gives preference to applicants who submit research proposals that fit the research interests of the individual Centres of Excellence. Applicants are therefore advised to familiarize themselves with the work that has been going on in the research-focussed Centres of Excellence at Kedge Business School:

  • Sustainability
  • Marketing & New Consumption
  • Supply Chain
  • Food, Wine and Hospitality Management
