The doctoral program in management has two instakes per year:

  • Application deadline for a start in September: February 20
  • Application deadline for a start in February: August 31 of the previous year

To be admitted to the program, candidates must have an MSc degree in management or a closely related discipline and the support of a faculty member who will act as their thesis supervisor; students who have not found a supervisor by the time of the application, can still apply to the program and their file will be circulated to potential supervisors.


Candidates must apply online within the deadlines. Incomplete files will not be considered. The application file is composed of:

  • a CV (in English)

  • a statement of purpose (in English)

  • a research prososal (in English)
    Guidelines for the research proposal

  • Bachelor and Master transcript of grades (scanned and translated if the originals are not in English or French)

  • at least one letter of reference (from referees with institutional email addresses only)


GRE and English tests are not required but English proficiency is necessary to succeed in the program. Having basic knowledge of French is also useful for a smoother acculturation in Lausanne.
