Director of the finance and accounting specialisation
The Finance and Accounting specialisation of the PhD in Business Administration at SKEMA is designed to provide doctoral students with a solid education in fields needed to carry out cutting-edge research. Our students first take strong core courses from the PhD qualifying year programme of our partner Université Paris Dauphine-PSL, followed by field courses taught by our top-notch scholars that regularly publish in top-tier academic journals.
Our vibrant seminars and conferences organised by the FAIRR Research Centre enable students to meet other top researchers from around the world. Students also participate (as presenters and discussants) in the International Accounting & Finance Doctoral Symposium (IAFDS) run in partnership with leading institutions from Europe, China, and Australia. This lively research environment prepares students for the academic job market by providing them with an excellent network experience and the skills to publish in leading academic journals.
Successful graduates will receive a PhD. degree from SKEMA Business School and a French state doctoral degree from the Université Côte d'Azur (UCA). The programme selects highly qualified applicants with strong research potential and motivation. Candidates should hold a master's degree (or be close to completion).
