We can try to explain why you should choose the AMS Executive PhD, but the best publicity comes from the people who are actually in the program right now, or who are already graduated and are taking full advantage of their new knowledge in an exciting international career or a personal venture.

Our current PhD candidates and alumni are the real hands-on experts when it comes to explaining how they experience(d) the program, how it changed their careers and lives and how it helped them grow.

We invite you to go through these testimonials and immerse yourself in the life of a PhD candidate at Antwerp Management School.

"After doing an extensive search for part-time PhD programs, I found that the Executive PhD at AMS is the most flexible for full-time employees who wish to pursue their studies. In addition, all the team members, from the director to the coach, professors, program managers and administrative staff are very supportive and always do their best to facilitate students’ progress. One more important part are the program modules. The knowledge and guidance we get from the lecturing professors are very beneficial and help me to find the right directions in the research oceans where I frequently feel lost. Everyone in the team is willing and happy to help. And for all the above mentioned reasons, I’m so glad that I made the correct choice."

Nirmeen Al Essa - Instructor of Marketing and Business Management American College of the Middle East (Kuwait)

"After having gained ample experience in the corporate world, an executive position is a hindrance to stepping into research-focused programs. Nevertheless, the design of the AMS Executive PhD offers flexibility as well as the opportunity to develop your academic expertise while still successfully maintaining your full-time role.

A congregation of senior executives from around the globe with valuable cultural diversification enriches the academic input provided by the program and provides a tangible, solid variety of corporate experiences.

To orchestrate all this together, a dedicated, driven, and professional team supports you from start to finish with backup tailored to your individual progress level.

Now halfway through the program, I have been passionately enjoying every step of this journey while being consistently mentored to successfully reach my ultimate objective."

Dima K. Braiteh - Senior Banking Executive Beirut- Lebanon

"The Executive PhD here at AMS is fantastic. You get to know a lot of exciting peers, industry experts and professors from all over the world. Combined with fast response times and strong support from my PhD supervisors makes it a well-tailored program fitting my situation as a busy manager.

I’m very happy that I made the right choice."

Fabian Hänle - China CEO at Blickle, China

"A wonderful educational journey. Together with like-minded peers from literally all over the globe, we are introduced to every relevant aspect in our PhD journey by an international array of top-notch professors, both within Antwerp Management School, the University of Antwerp, and other universities in Europe. The instruction material is practical for academic as well as managerial work and keeps providing you with new insights that force you to rethink while it helps you to grow both as a scholar and a person. This experience keeps you wondering: is it the journey, the destination or both? AMS - Opening minds to impact the world."
