This year’s intake sees 25 participants representing 20 different nationalities join the PhD in Finance. The three-year doctorale programme - associated with the EDHEC-Risk Institute, EDHEC Business School’s finance research centre in Europe (Nice, London) and Asia (Singapore) - leads to the title of “Doctor of Philosophy in Finance”.
The two participants in the residential track will work three days a week within EDHEC’s research teams. In this respect, they will receive sizeable financial support, as well as contributing to projects of most concern to the financial industry and in synergy with their thesis. These participants hold degrees from prestigious universities, including the University of Karlsruhe, Goethe University, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and the University of Michigan.
The 23 participants in the executive track will retain their full-time employment and concentrate their work on scientific questions central to issues and projects of concern to their companies. These more-experienced participants are aiming to progress to senior executive positions or, for those that already occupy them, to broaden their strategic thinking so as to steer their organisation in new directions.
