Entry requirements

Modified : novembre 13, 2012 at 08:15

Three different entry pathways have been defined by the Graduate School council, in adherence with the 7th August 2006 decree pertaining to Doctoral programs. In each case, the decision given to the head of the university is first submitted to an evaluation procedure as described below:

Modalités d'entrée
Type of previous qualifications held Evaluation procedure
Case A:
Nationally recognised Master of Research degree (or similar) in Economics or Management Sciences.
Favourable decision from the thesis supervisor and the directors of both the research centre and the Grad School.
Case B:
Nationally recognised Master of Economics or Management Science (professional stream).
Previous research work supervised by a Grad School staff member holding habilitation. If that staff member’s decision is favourable and recognises a real aptitude for research, the conditions of case A will be applied.
Case C:
Other cases of degree not at the Master’s level or from an area other than Economics and Management Sciences.
Assessment of research dossier (detailed CV, degree certificates and academic transcripts, research paper or publications, thesis project outline with bibliography, letter of support from a Grad School staff member holding habilitation and the director of the chosen research centre) by a habilitated Grad School employee specialised in the relevant research area. If approved, these applications are examined by the members of the Grad School Council. 2 jury sessions are held each year for this purpose.

Thesis projects must be in line with the priority research areas of the centres attached to ED SEG. Applicants must first contact the research centre they wish to work with and ensure that they have the support of a doctoral supervisor in their research area (economics or management).

Doctoral supervises cannot take on more than 10 doctoral students at a time, including jointly supervised doctorates.

Graduate School Council decision of the 30/04/2009:

“Doctoral supervision in the areas of economics and management is to be by a supervisor holding habilitation from the relevant section (CNU 05 or 06 or CNRS 37). If the supervisor is from another section, the Graduate School director will offer a joint supervision in conjunction with a supervisor holding habilitation in the appropriate section. If this is refused by the doctoral supervisor the case will be put to the Graduate School’s jury.”
