The DPhil in Management-Economics is an advanced degree available to holders of a professional or research master's degree in the fields of management, economics, law or social sciences.Regular supervision by a thesis director is offered to each young research through the entire program. At first, it is used to make sure that all acquire adequate writing and research methodologies for the redaction of their thesis and then as a source of feedback and support. It is complemented by seminars specifically designed to build upon the researcher's knowledge in his or her field of expertise. Following three years of intense work and supervision, the PhD candidate is expected to produce a 300 pages thesis reflecting current academic practice. The DBA is awarded upon successful defence of the thesis in front of a jury.

Combined with professional development

At the EIPDCE, theory and practice are intrinsically linked and that even in advanced studies. Hence while the research and development of a Ph.D. at EIPDCE provides the methodological tools to reshape patterns of thinking, It also gives technical solutions for our final goal: the improvement of society. To bolster such result, students participate in practical workshops and study compulsory foreign languages.
