Applications are invited for 15 Fully Funded PhD Positions and Scholarships in Business at Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS), University of Mannheim, Germany.


The Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS) at the University of Mannheim offers excellent opportunities for academically talented and highly motivated students with a quantitative orientation to pursue their doctoral degree in Business.

Qualified graduates are encouraged to apply for the full-time PhD Programs starting in September 2021. Up to 15 scholarships will be offered to most qualified applicants.


A very good research oriented Master’s degree (or an equivalent) in the respective field. Applications from students with excellent 4-Year-Bachelor degrees are considered as well. Applicants from neighboring fields can be admitted if their background is judged to be sufficient. 

Within the Center of Doctoral Studies in Business we offer 07 programs:

• Accounting
• Finance
• Information Systems
• Management
• Marketing
• Operations Management
• Taxation

Our doctoral programs provide unique interdisciplinary training across the boundaries of the economic and the social sciences to equip graduates to be academic leaders and decision scientists of the future. 

The first year of the program lays the critical foundation necessary for later work in field courses and dissertation and paves a path for the students to work in intense collaboration with our dynamic and outstanding faculties to learn the craft of research. This occurs both in theoretical projects and in empirical fields, where learning-by-doing transfers information about data sets, research strategy, and econometric tools. In the second year students attend a number of courses in their field of specialization while starting their research and writing phase. 

The research findings of our students and graduates are regularly published in the leading journals. Our graduates pursue careers both in academia and outside academia, taking up professorships, assistant professorships and postdoctoral research positions at internationally renowned academic institutions.
