Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Humboldt Graduate School of Business



HGSB Signet


The area of business science has experienced major scientific progress over recent years. In order to be prepared for a successful career in academia, business doctorate students need not only high-quality guidance but also internationally competitive training.

However, most German institutions currently do not offer structured doctoral programs in business science to their students. Striving for excellence and embracing international competition in doctoral education, the Humboldt Graduate School of Business merged with the Berlin Doctoral Program in Economics and Management Science (BDPEMS). The first intake of doctoral students was 2009, the application deadline for the October 2013 intake is April 30.
