Prerequisites to be admitted to the doctoral program are a master or diploma degree (University). Very competent applicants with a bachelor degree or diploma degree (University of Applied Science) may be admitted after having proven their ability for doctoral research by attending the WHU Assessment Procedure.
The various academic backgrounds (business, economics, methodological, factual, others) will be accommodated within the doctoral studies. For further information, please see § 5 of the doctoral program regulations.
For being enrolled within the doctoral program, your doctoral project needs to be supported by a supervisor who has to be a WHU professor.
Please understand that we can only assess the value of your previous studies and degrees after a WHU professor has confirmed to support your doctoral project.
