Institut for Regnskab
During your bachelor studies, you obtain knowledge. Through your master’s, you learn how to apply knowledge. As a PhD student at the Department of Accounting at Copenhagen Business School, you learn how to create knowledge.
The Department of Accounting offers you a great opportunity if you want to learn to create knowledge and add an attractive dimension to your capabilities. Through three years as a PhD student, you will develop skills to design and execute research projects which underlie the knowledge on which the future is built.
GAIN UNIVERSAL SKILLS
The skills you develop are universal and applicable in many different contexts. A PhD is not only a prerequisite for an academic career but also a great advantage in private companies. Furthermore, it opens up opportunities in international organisations such as the EU, UN and OECD.
YOUR CHOICE - YOUR CAREER
Our PhD programme gives you the opportunity to shape your future as well as your daily life.
AUTONOMY AND DIVERSITY
At the Department of Accounting, you have the freedom to choose the research method and the specific topic you want to do research on. In other words, you will have the opportunity to pursue ideas that suit your own interests and abilities. This is obviously important for the skills you acquire and your future career but it also affects your everyday life as a PhD student since your choices affect the specific tasks to be performed.
BECOME AN EXPERT
The freedom to choose also means that you decide which parts of the department’s extensive network you wish to use and further develop. Finally, it means that you choose the field in which you want to become an expert.
BE PART OF OUR RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT
STRONG ACADEMIC ENVIRONMENT
As a PhD student, you contribute your ideas and commitment to a dynamic research environment, where collaboration and sparring offer great benefits. Your PhD project is carried out by you, but parts of the project may be done in cooperation with your supervisor or researchers from other universities and countries.
EXPERIENCE THE WORLD IN A PROFESSIONAL CONTEXT
Lasting social and professional networks are built and invaluable experience is gained through participation in international conferences, courses, workshops and longer stays at top universities. Our PhD students have had long stays at e.g. New York University, University of Chicago, Manchester Business School and Stanford University.
CLOSE SOCIAL TIES
At our department, we think of each other not as competitors, but as colleagues who have the benefits and pleasure of each other’s presence. Our department is characterised by a strong social tradition which is felt in everyday life and various events such as our Friday morning breakfast, summer and Christmas parties and other events, such as sports or cinema trips.
