Doctoral Studies Ph.D. in Management, specialisation Business Innovation

Doctoral students at the Institute of Information Management (IWI-HSG) usually study the Business Innovation specialistion of HSG’s doctoral studies in Management.


The Ph.D. programme in Management allows to earn a Ph.D. in Management HSG. It offers either preparation for a research-based professional career (standard track) or for an academic career (academic track).


In the standard track, doctoral students complete two compulsory courses in research methodology (including design science research) and five elective courses (out of ca. nine offered courses in IS theories, reference IS publications, information management) in the coursework phase. After submitting the research proposal, students then complete two seminars in the research phase.
