Science & Management (Ph.D. programme)

This unique programme combines a doctorate at a scientific university with the MBA at the Collège des Ingénieurs.

Ph.D. & MBA: 44 months, 2 degrees

Science and Management is a programme that enables scientists to complete their doctorate and our MBA at the same time. For years, we have been cooperating with prestigious institutions in France, Germany and Switzerland. As a result, our research and management, to this extent, within a dual programme is unique throughout Europe. The Ph.D. candidates benefit from pursuing their research and venturing into the business world at the same time.

Programme structure

Combining research and management

Science & Management candidates have up to 350 hours (15 weeks) of intense management classes at the Collège spread over a 3 year period of their Ph.D. The company mission (27 weeks) is completed after the candidate has defended his/her thesis. It is a unique opportunity to complete a Ph.D. and gain management know-how and of course, set foot in the real business world.

Open to all engineering and science disciplines

Science and Management is designed for doctoral candidates from all academic disciplines in engineering and the sciences. We have built strong relations with the Sorbonne Université in Paris and the Karlsruhe Institut of Technology in Germany and have an official agreement with both universities.

Every year, a dozen of Fellows start the programme. Fellows have also completed the doctoral programme in cooperation with other universities such as TU Munich, RWTH Aachen, Université Paris Saclay, PSL, ETH Zürich, Pisa.
