BI Norwegian Business School, the Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship is currently inviting applications for new doctoral scholarships, starting August 2023. The PhD specialization in Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Innovation focuses on developing doctoral students' theoretical knowledge and methodological skills required to become successful academics.
We encourage applications from students with a strong background in disciplines such as economics, business administration and organizational and behavioral sciences. The ideal candidate is interested in pursuing an academic career in research and teaching, and has strong communication and analytical skills. We welcome research interests and project proposals in areas related to strategy, entrepreneurship and innovation. Our faculty conducts research across a range of areas including (but not limited to) competitive strategy and business models, international strategy, corporate structures and governance, entrepreneurship, innovation, knowledge-based strategy and strategic leadership and processes, as well as alliances and M&As.
The Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship is currently home to about 45 full-time faculty and 16 PhD students. The Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurships is proud of its internationally recognized scholars publishing in top tier international academic journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Management Science, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management, Research Policy, and Journal of Business Venturing to mention a few.
The department hosts research centers in Construction, Health Management and Ocean Industries, with strong external partnerships supporting faculty research, workshops and seminars. The doctoral program is an important element of the department’s research agenda and of BI’s vision of being one of the leading business schools in Europe. The selected candidates will be working closely with faculty and have the opportunity to collaborate on research projects. Their place of work will be at the BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo.
Eligible applicants must have completed a Master of Science degree with thesis work, a research masters/M.Phil degree, or a comparable degree relevant for the specialization in Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Innovation by the early autumn of 2023, with a grade point average of B or higher.
Final year Master of Science students are encouraged to apply.
