ESSEC Ph.D Programs (Financial Aid)
« on: Nov 21, 2009, 10:53 PM »
ESSEC Business School, France

"Our Business School is the first French Institution to offer a Ph.D. program entirely in English that meets the highest international standards. It trains future professors and researchers at top international level. It is your first step towards an international academic career with a European perspective.

The following concentrations are offered - in English - in 2009/2010:
- Management
- Operations Management and Decision Sciences
- Marketing
- Economics
- Accounting and Auditing

Applicants should have an outstanding (four year) Bachelor’s degree (BA, BSc or equivalent) or higher qualification (a Master’s degree would be an asset). French students can apply with "Bac +4" or more. European students with a Master in Research (MRes) are also welcome to apply – successful applicants would gain exemption from certain courses/seminars and depending on their background, would follow a sequence of courses/seminars covering approximately one year instead of two.
The program is open to top students from business and economics schools, but also from fields such as engineering, hard sciences, psychology, sociology, philosophy, etc.

The deadline for applications is:
1st session: January 31, 2010
2nd session: May 15, 2010

Tuition fees:
- The tuition fees for the Ph.D. program amount to 10,000 euros per year for the first two years.
- For students from the European Union, reduced tuition fees of 5,000 euros per year apply.
- After the first two years, tuition fees for students in residence amount for 2,400 euros for year; an exceptional waiver of half this amount applies for periods of non-residence.

Financial aid:
Ph.D. students may be eligible for financial aid according to need and merit:
- Tuition fees waiver;
- Tuition fees waiver plus a Teaching or Research Assistantship with a living allowance (currently 15,000 euros for a full year of study).
These financial aids are available during the four years of study.
They are conditional upon students’ progress and performance, which are reviewed annually.
- External aid (e.g. French Government scholarships for foreigners, foreign government scholarships, CIFRE agreements).
- Bank loans.
