The European Institute of Japanese Studies (EIJS) at Stockholm School of Economics is now recruiting Ph.D. candidates for the Doctoral Program in Asian Economy and Business
. This is a program in close cooperation with the business community.
The Ph.D. candidates will be accepted into the regular SSE Ph.D. Program in Business Administration, Economics or Finance. In addition to fulfilling the regular SSE entrance criteria (please see under each specialization on home page http://www.hhs.se/Education/PhD/Pages/AEB.aspx
candidate should also be fluent in Japanese, Korean or Chinese.
The candidate will be part of an "Asian group" clustered together in close vicinity to EIJS and Stockholm China Economic Research Institute (SCERI) and in this way constitute part of the "Asian academic hub" at the School. Besides the regular SSE PhD curriculum, there will be a number of Asia-related seminars and other activities in which the candidates are expected to take part. The Program is for four years and given in English.
What is special about this program is that we will be working very closely with the business community; various companies are “sponsors” of the Ph.D. candidates. We are at this moment looking for two candidates, one working on Japan
and one on Korea
. The deadline for applications is Feb 1, 2015.
