University of Milano-Bicocca seeks candidates for Ph.D. positions in Business for Society for the next cohort starting November 2022.

The Ph.D. program in Business for Society is a full-time 3 years integrated, multidisciplinary work and research program for those who are oriented towards making a significant contribution to the field of strategic management, innovation, sustainability and social responsibility.

Our academically rigorous courses introduce students to the latest concepts in management research and help them develop the skills they need not only to carry out their research projects but also to manage the ongoing technological, economic and social transformations, through a strong cooperation with the business world and the civil society.
