The Antwerp Management School Executive PhD program is a four-year, research-based program.

Our PhD program is tailor-made around the needs of Executives and Managers who aim to translate their expertise and market know-how into a PhD degree. It addresses life-long learning aspirations of intellectually active professionals who have already obtained advanced degrees in their fields and wish to lift their education to the highest level. As such, the program enables you to acquire a new mindset and apply scientific methodologies to actual business issues. Therefore, the program has a major impact on your personal and professional development.

This program is designed for senior executives with over 10 years of relevant management experience, who work in organizations that are predominantly internationally oriented. A significant amount of our participants hold board-level or C-level positions. Participants should have a commitment to life-long learning, and personal and leadership development.
