The WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management Doctoral Program is designed for applicants who have completed a diploma or master program with outstanding success and are motivated to accomplish academically sound work that is located in the area between theory and practice.
WHU is authorized to grant doctoral degrees and bestows the title Doctor of Economic Science (Dr. rer. pol.), based on a dissertation and a disputation. Both the dissertation and the disputation act as an indicator for the exceptional qualification which the doctoral student obtains by joining the doctoral program: the ability to independent scientific work.
The doctoral studies at WHU are divided into an overall study of methods and subject specific studies. The offered courses are closely coordinated by the academic groups and the academic director of the doctoral program; they are continually evaluated and developed. With "DOBES" (instructor evaluation system), every doctoral student has the possibility to actively influence the courses that are offered.
