CEU Business School Budapest Launches PhD In Business Administration
CEU Business School is proud to launch a new doctoral program in Business Administration following its successful approval for registration by the New York State Education Department. The inaugural class will begin in September 2016. CEU and CEU Business School promotes an environment where high-quality research can take place, where readiness for intellectual risk-taking and for radical rethinking of foundations is strongly encouraged. Academic excellence and high quality research of our distinguished faculty members make our educational institution truly outstanding in CEE and also in the academic world.

The primary aim of the PhD program in Business Administration at CEU Business School is to produce graduates who will have academic careers dealing with a diverse range of business subjects and challenges, teaching and conducting research.
There will be a particular emphasis in this program on specific academic competencies that exist within CEU Business School, such as innovation/entrepreneurship, business and society, and advanced general management (including management and strategy).

A particularly favorable target audience for this program comprises PhD applicants from and/or having interest in bringing best management thinking and research to business schools and other relevant academic units in institutions of higher education located in emerging and transitional economies, including Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

The likely career path of our PhD graduates, therefore, will be in teaching and conducting research in business largely within faculties of business schools mostly associated with these regions. We also anticipate that a segment of our PhD students will have personal careers in business, government and not-for-profit institutions.

PhD Programs in Business or Management are flourishing worldwide. In addition, there is growing opportunity for business PhDs globally, especially in emerging markets.

The Wall Street Journal reported in late 2011, “While thousands of new schools have opened around the world in recent years, the number of new PhDs in business subjects has held relatively steady, and many schools are now facing a serious shortage of well-qualified faculty.” In spite of this growth of PhD programs, there is still an absence in the CEE and other nearby regions.
