    Emlyon PhD Program

    Admission to the fully funded five-year Ph.D. program at Emlyon is open! We are looking for applicants who show evidence of strong intellectual ability, commitment to and interest in an academic career.  

    Emlyon business school is one of the top business schools in France and offers a vibrant and renowned research environment. The school prides itself on having the triple accreditation: AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. In line with these accreditations, the school is committed to provide world-class educational efforts, resources, and a strong involvement in research.

    Each year we admit only a select few doctoral students (approximately 5 students) so that the program remains small, intimate and fully-funded which means our candidates have complete access to the resources they need to develop as scholars in a supportive setting. The program runs for five years. In the first two years, students acquire the theoretical knowledge and methodological skills needed to become successful researchers through a variety of courses delivered by our research-driven faculty. The final three years are devoted to designing and conducting an ambitious empirical project with the intention of contributing to a theoretical conversation. The program is entirely delivered in English, and no knowledge of French is required.

    Selection to the program is competitive and based on academic records, GMAT and TOEFL scores, academic letters of references, and on applicants' statement of purpose. Applicants must hold a bachelor degree and preferably a master's degree.

    Application deadlines are April 30th for admission in early September. Admission decisions will be announced mid-June.
