CBS covers all of the classic fields within business economics and business languages connected with the management and operation of public and private companies – for example, marketing, finance, accounting, management accounting, organisation and translation. In addition, research is carried out in a number of subjects necessary for the understanding of the challenges that companies face in the global knowledge society. These include not only business law, informatics, international economics, intercultural understanding and media research, but also fields such as philosophy, political science, design, art, anthropology, and business history.
In comparison to other international business schools, this wide range of subjects is unique. As a natural consequence of this range, PhD training at CBS is organised in three doctoral schools - each with its own academic profile.
Applications for admission are made to the individual doctoral schools. For all doctoral schools, there are different routes to becoming a PhD student at CBS.
The PhD programme is subject to the regulations contained in the Ministerial Order on the PhD Course of Study and on the PhD Degree , which CBS has implemented in the programme regulations for the different PhD programmes.
