Who is eligible to enroll in the program?
The Business School allows students who hold a Master’s Degree in either Social Sciences or Exact Sciences to enroll in our program.
The program is also relevant to students who have not completed a dissertation during their Masters studies (on the condition that they complete their thesis on the “Complementary to Research” track—more information is available in “Admission Requirements''.) LINK TO ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
I already have a Master’s Degree. Why should I begin a Doctorate?
1 It can be your entrance pass into Academia
Receiving your Ph.D. is the way to integrate into the academic world of scholars and researchers. Unlike other disciplines, there is an ongoing demand for faculty in Business Administration both in Israel and abroad.
2 It can open opportunities for senior roles at large companies
A PhD in Business Administration is extremely relevant in the job market. As opposed to the recent past, today a Master’s degree does not guarantee senior positions in leading companies such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon. A Ph.D. grants alumni with the skills, mainly in the specialty of Business Analytics, that give them a meaningful advantage in relation to other candidates in the market. A Ph.D. in Business Administration combines a quantitative understanding with a deep business understanding, something that is not always true about Doctorate degrees in other fields.
3 Guidance from leading lecturers and creating a customized program for each student
Every doctoral student in Business Administration is paired with an advisor who specializes in a relevant field, and receives close guidance and supervision from them throughout the degree. With the exception of the 12 credits which comprise the core program courses; the supervisor and student build the learning content and program together. (LINK to LECTURERS)
4 Scholarships and research grants
research students receive scholarships, both from our school and research foundations.
Submitting a Scholarship Request
From time to time, scholarships offered to research students at the University and the School of Business Administration are published. The procedures for submitting the scholarship will be published in the advertisement. It is also possible to work in parallel while learning as a teaching assistant at the school.
Criteria for receiving a Scholarship:
- In “Phase One” or “Phase Two” of their studies
- In a progressive stage of their research project
- Academic excellence and high grades
- Participation in academic activities at the Business School.
- Part-time employment outside the university
- Recommendation from their Supervisor
5 International connections with the leading universities
The Hebrew University and Business School researchers have connections with leading universities in North America, Europe and East Asia. These connections allow research students to attend conferences, develop their research network, and publish their research in leading journals. In addition, while completing their degree students may have the opportunity to study at leading universities around the world, or, upon completion of their doctorate, study abroad for a post-doctorate degree.
** It is important to note that there is not an option to combine full employment together with Doctorate studies. The studies require a lot of investment, and allow for part time employment alone.
