PhD Programmes

As a PhD student at MPP you will be enrolled in the Doctoral School in Organisation and Management Studies

The Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy (MPP) is part of the Doctoral School of Organisation and Management Studies (OMS), which is one of three doctoral schools at CBS.

The aim of the Doctoral School of Organisation and Management Studies (OMS) is to create an active national and international research environment at CBS for PhD students, who deal with organization and management in private, public and voluntary organizations in a theoretical and empirical manner. The theoretical basis is interdisciplinary and builds on sociology, social psychology, political science, political economy, philosophy, communication, history, ethnography and cultural studies of organizational and management practice. The doctoral school attaches great importance to:

  • ensuring a relevant portfolio of courses in organization and management research as well as giving the PhD fellows access to an education in a wide range of social science areas

  • ensuring a high academic level of the PhD programmes through continuous quality assurance and improvement

  • making it professionally and financially possible for the PhD fellows to present their projects at international conferences, in international journals and that they be given the opportunity to go abroad for a period of time

  • attracting international researchers of the highest quality to the doctoral school's courses, seminars, counselling and PhD dissertation evaluation

  • establishing institutionalised collaborative agreements with international researchers and research environments

MPP offers courses and workshops at a high professional level which ensure participants a broad introduction to a number of newer research fields while simultaneously facilitating depth and specialisation. The courses aim to develop broad theoretical and methodological expertise and insight into the latest research at the department.

Further information on the content of the PhD courses, admission requirements, financial aid, and PhD courses offered is available on the PhD programmes page at the link at the bottom of the page.
