Information on Ph.D. Studies

Doctoral studies at the University of St.Gallen prepare you for an academic career or a research-based position in an applied field.

To achieve this, you will sharpen the necessary methodological skills during the coursework and research phase and expand on them while working on your doctoral thesis.

Our six schools offer the following seven doctoral programmes:

  • Ph.D. in Management (PMA)
  • Ph.D. in Economics and Econometrics (PEcon)
  • Ph.D. in Finance (PiF)

  • Ph.D. in Organization Studies and Cultural Theory (DOK) 
  • Ph.D. in Law (DLS)
  • Ph.D. in Computer Science (DCS)

Our university’s federal structure and division of competencies allow us to shape the content and progress of the programmes for our various schools and their doctoral candidates individually.
