We continuously seek a broad academic profile and therefore welcome applications from all candidates regardless of academic background as long as the applicant can demonstrate a genuine interest in doing research within one of the three fields (1) Financial Accounting, (2) Management Accounting and (3) Auditing, which are the core research and teaching areas of the Department. Consequently we encourage any application which demonstrates such genuine interest. Interest can be demonstrated via a description of one specific idea for a PhD project or via short descriptions of several less specific ideas which can materialize in more specific ideas at a later stage.
The candidate should have a basic training at the Masters level (similar to the 3 + 2 Bologna process). An educational background in the social sciences is necessary. The applicant must have successfully completed the Masters degree before commencing PhD at CBS. The applicants must be fluent in English.
