Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is one of Europe’s leading business schools with an internationally recognized reputation for leading research. We are determined to attract the most talented PhD students in accounting, finance and management and we offer a stimulating academic environment.
Our faculty have placed students at international universities and research institutions, including HEC Montréal, ESE Rotterdam, Georgetown University, St. Gallen, CityU Hong Kong, NOVA Lissabon, WU Vienna, NEOMA Business School, Technical University of Munich, University of California.
The five year PhD programme commences with intensive course work (term 1 to 3). PhD students focus on research techniques and methods as well as on their chosen area of academic specialization in Accounting, Finance or Management.
The Master of Business Research & Analytics (MBRA) is an integrated part of the programme. After the first two years of the programme, students have the opportunity to receive the Master’s degree as part of their PhD programme.
While our primary intention is providing graduates with an ideal platform to enter the world of academia, their research topics are also directly relevant for business and politics. We train our students to develop solutions to complex problems and to develop social and conceptual skills they need to advise others. Our faculty provides high-quality supervision and an exciting state-of-the-art campus environment.
Upon successful completion of studies and research results, Frankfurt School awards a PhD degree in economics, Dr. rer. pol., the German equivalent to the PhD.
Frankfurt School offers fully-funded study places and a generous monthly stipend for up to five years.
