About the Doctoral School

The Grenoble Ecole de Management Doctoral School brings together research training at the highest level and builds upon three program areas – the Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA), the PhD, and Advanced Research Programs. The Doctoral School is committed to valorizing the intellectual impact of our worldwide community of researchers to support the mission of Grenoble Ecole de Management.

Doctorate of Business Administration

Our AMBA-accredited DBA program has a truly global reach, and provides the link between academic research and business. The program is delivered in Grenoble and with our partners around the world. 

Ph-D in Business Administration

Our 4-year full-time PhD program is designed to ensure that students are involved very early on in research and develop a solid publication record during their studies.  The PhD is our beacon of research excellence and delivered with collaborating university partners in France.

Advanced Research Programs

Our Advanced Research Seminars provide training for advanced research methodology in Management and Business for researchers in Grenoble and beyond. Our Post-Doctoral Bridge to Business Program, endorsed by AACSB, provides a conversion to business faculty for holders of non-business PhDs.
