Ph.D Positions in Marketing
Tilburg, 5000 LE, (Noord-Brabant), 38 hours per week Tilburg University
Tilburg University’s Ph.D. programme is among the most selective in Europe. It offers a full-fledged graduate programme, comparable to top schools in the U.S. Coursework and dissertation sum up to a four-year curriculum, divided into the 1-year M.Phil. programme (mostly coursework) and the 3-year Ph.D. programme (mostly dissertation work).
Before embarking on their Ph.D., our students first enter a 1-year M.Phil (graduate) programme that prepares them for doing research in marketing. The MPhil programme offers one of the most complete sets of fundamental and advanced courses anywhere in Europe in preparation for a Ph.D., and is taught by professors who are top-notch researchers. Candidates who already possess an M.Phil. degree can apply for direct admission to the dissertation phase.
All applicants must have a doctoral degree or be close to completion.
Students who have successfully completed the M.Phil. programme can transfer from M.Phil. to Ph.D. status. The dissertation phase takes three years and covers a specific research domain in quantitative marketing, consumer behaviour, or marketing strategy. While PhD students work in close collaboration with their thesis advisors, they also have plenty of opportunity to interact with the other faculty members.
Tilburg University (the Netherlands) is a modern, specialized university. It is well known for its high standards in education and scientific research as well as its good support facilities. The Tilburg University campus offers both tranquillity and connectivity as it is situated in a wooded park, yet only five minutes away from the city centre, main highways, and railways. Located in Tilburg, a mid-sized city of 200,000 inhabitants in the south of the Netherlands, and in close proximity to cities like Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, and London, Tilburg University is situated in the very heart of Europe
The Marketing department is part of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration. The Faculty enjoys high rankings for its excellence in education and research.
