Overview

EBS Doctoral Programme in Management is a unique, highly individualised double-track PhD programme, which focuses on real-world impact. Doctoral candidates are offered a choice between:

  • a classical research track, focusing on theories, analyses and critical thinking in areas related to contemporary management, business and entrepreneurship related subjects;
  • an applied/experimental track, where research is directly combined with the development and implementation of real-life changes in organisations (private or public) or with the design and launch of new business or societal-impact ventures based on innovative product or service concepts.

The PhD programme is aimed both at candidates looking to pursue an academic career in management-related disciplines and candidates looking to implement change in their organisations or to design, develop and implement new innovative business concepts.

Classical research track

This strand of the PhD programme aims to broaden our understanding of the world by providing deep knowledge of organisational theories and society while developing critical and analytical thinking and research skills. Upon successfully completing the programme, one has developed the ability to make continuous and logical arguments and synthesise new ideas. A PhD degree in Management offers further career opportunities in academia and increases one’s value on the labour market.

More about classical track here: ebs.ee/en/doctoral-studies

Applied track

This strand of the PhD programme focuses on implementing real-life changes in organisations and on developing and putting into practice innovative entrepreneurial ideas and business models. The applied track provides students with the necessary skills and an extensive support toolbox for:

the development and “live” implementation of organisational changes and new business models in the context of specific organisations, or;
exploring, building, incubating and implementing new/early-stage business or start-up ideas.
The academic outputs of the applied track are directly based on the data collected, experiences and analysis gained in the course of the practical implementation activities performed by the candidates.
