ESCP Business School: Ph.D. Open positions for a PhD in Finance

ESCP Business School, one of the best-ranked Business Schools in Europe, is seeking outstanding candidates for the Finance track of its Paris-based Ph.D. Programme.

ESCP provides a four-year scholarship/teaching assistance contract up to €24.500/year and full tuition waiver to a significant proportion of Ph.D. students. In addition, external funding from companies (CIFRE), the French government or the European Union is available.

The programme offers a range of PhD level classes in Empirical Methods, Corporate Finance, Asset Pricing, and Banking together with elective classes in Economics and Management. Candidates for a Finance Ph.D. should have good quantitative skills so that they can rapidly start their own empirical or theoretical research. A research master in Finance, Economics or a related field is an asset but not compulsory. Applicants with interest in all fields of finance are welcome.

Finance faculty members regularly publish in top tier finance journals and maintain an active seminar series and visitor programme. ESCP also subscribes to all major finance databases.
