Apply for the Fully Funded CBS International Scholarships in Denmark. The deadline for the application is ongoing. The scholarship is for Ph.D. degree.
The Department of Finance at the Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a PhD scholarship in statistics.
The Department of Finance carries out research and teaching in a wide range of financial topics but also includes the Center of Statistics as an integrated part of the department. The Center for Statistics is responsible for research and teaching in probability theory and statistics and the application of these subjects within business economics.
The three-year PhD program at CBS allows students to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors. Additionally, the program is highly international, and students must participate in international research conferences and to spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student. Also, students must actively participate in the Department’s research activities, such as seminars and conferences organized by the Department.
To be considered, the candidate should have a basic training at the Master’s level (similar to the 3 + 2 Bologna process). The applicant must have successfully completed the Master’s degree before commencing PhD at CBS, but we also welcome applications from individuals close to completion of the Master’s degree. Generally, a completed MBA education does not fulfil this requirement. The applicants must be fluent in English.
Additionally, the successful applicant must have shown academic excellence with a record of top grades from previously completed programs. Priority will be given to candidates who have both a strong quantitative background and training in statistics.
