Open positions for a Ph.D. in Finance

ESCP Business School, one of the best-ranked Business School in Europe, is seeking outstanding candidates for the Ph.D. Programme in Management and Finance in Paris, France.

The application deadline for a start in the fall of 2022 is April 18, 2022.

We have developed a four-year programme with specializations in the different areas of management to help each student reach international standards of research quality.

ESCP provides a four-year scholarship and full tuition waiver to a significant proportion of Ph.D. students. Externally funded opportunities are possible too (public or private funding).

Candidates for a Finance Ph.D. should have a certain level of quantitative skills to enable them to conduct empirical or theoretical work rapidly. A research master in finance or a related field is an asset but not compulsory. Applicants with interest in all fields of finance (corporate finance, banking and asset pricing) are welcome.

Further information about the programme is available on our website.

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