PhD program

The PhD programme at NHH in Management Science aims to give dedicated graduate students a solid training in using rational, systematic, science-based techniques to inform and improve busi­ness decisions, making use of empirical and theoretical methods reflecting the state of the art in the field. Currently we offer two main directions in our programme; the economics and management of Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment (ENE) and Business Planning and Control (BPC).


The PhD program at NHH is designed for those seeking a specialization within the fields of eco­no­mics and business administration for challenging jobs in the private and public sector. As a PhD scholar at NHH you will work closely with leading professors who have a significant impact on go­vern­ment policies, business practice and academic thought. NHH faculty members create a sti­mu­lating and rewarding research environment for doctoral students − both as supervisors, mentors and co-authors.

NHH PhD research scholarships are fully funded for four years on very competitive terms.

PhD research scholarships include a commitment to work 25% as a teaching and/or research assis­tant for the school while enrolled on the PhD program. NHH does not charge tuition from PhD stu­dents. Applications to the research scholar positions are welcomed from both Norwegian and in­ter­na­tional students.


The annual salary for the PhD Research Scholarships is currently 420.800 NOK gross (which is equi­valent to about € 50.600 or about US dollar 68.800). The scholarships are subject to Norwegian taxes and benefits, including health care provision and membership of the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund.


Applicants who have at least a Master of Science or comparable academic degree will be con­si­dered for admission. An additional requirement is that the academic education has to include at least one-and-a-half years of studies in business administration or economics.
