Department of Innovation and Organizational Economics
PhD students at the Department of Innovation and Organizational Economics (INO) are typically enrolled in the CBS PhD School in Economics and Management and follow the rules of this program. The students follow a structured PhD program with a preset selection of courses. The program includes five regular courses and two workshops. The mandatory courses are:
- Economics of Innovation,
- Management of Innovation,
- Foundations of Entrepreneurship,
- Applied Econometrics,
- and Qualitative Methods.
The two workshops are the Proposal Workshop, and the Publishing Course.
The courses are open to other PhD students, and especially the econometrics course is very popular. Each course runs over 8-10 weeks with weekly sessions, ending with written exams. So far, the results are very encouraging.
The department aims for a 1:1 relation between permanent faculty and PhD students, i.e. around 12-15 PhD student. This way we wish to ensure that PhD students may always receive the necessary attention from faculty in their education. The funding of the students may come from either external or internal sources. The PhD program is the same, the only difference is that the external funding will typically be thematically defined by a larger research project.
PhD project topics include but are not limited to the economics of entrepreneurship, the economics of research and development, high tech ventures, innovative entrepreneurship, academic entrepreneurship, open innovation, markets for technologies, crowd sourcing, business model innovation, knowledge transfer for innovation, patent and licensing studies, entry and industrial dynamics, applications of behavioral economics to entrepreneurship and innovation studies, entrepreneurship and human capital, the organization of teams, entrepreneurship within firms, as well as crowd-funding of start-ups.
The PhD coordinator at the Department of Innovation and Organizational Economics is Professor H.C. Kongsted.
