PhD candidates can rely on the intensive supervision and the extensive training offered by the school’s leading researchers in the field. They will follow the 3 or 4 year PhD programme of the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (ABRI). The school offers opportunities to attend conferences, to meet other international researchers and to participate in high-quality discussion groups in support of writing papers for publication. Many of our PhD candidates spend some time abroad during their trajectory. The prospects for the school’s doctoral graduates on the labour market are excellent, both inside and outside the academic world.

The PhD candidate is required to conduct independent research, supervised by a (team of) professor(s), and to incorporate the findings of his or her research in a doctoral dissertation. In addition, the PhD candidate will be involved in teaching activities at the School of Business and Economics. The 4-year PhD candidate will follow a training programme at ABRI for 30 ECTS.


Applicants should have a MPhil / Research master (e.g. our Business in Society Programme) or a university master programme with good grades in Economics, Business Administration, Operations Research, Sociology, or a related discipline. We expect candidates to show a proactive research orientation and to be proficient in written and spoken English. GMAT/GRE test results are required from the applicants with a master degree from a university outside the Netherlands. The candidates are expected to apply with their own research proposals written in accordance with the standard ABRI guidelines. The topic of the research proposal must fit with one or more research tracks of ABRI.


The salary will be in accordance with university regulations for academic personnel and amounts € 2.325,- gross per month during the first year and increases to € 2.972,- gross per month during the fourth year, based on a full-time employment.

The appointment will initially be for one year. After satisfactory evaluation of the initial appointment, the contract will be extended for a total duration of three years (for research master candidates) or four years (for regular master candidates)
