“The Knowledge Management and Innovation Management (KIM) Ph.D. program is designed to produce researchers, academics and professionals able to study and develop new knowledge, theories and tools in these relatively young and promising academic disciplines.”
For certain of its scientific specialties, the Université Grenoble Alpes is already ranked in the top 100 and top 200 universities in prominent international rankings (Reuters, Shanghai, Times Higher Education, and QS, for example). Due to the obvious strength of its research and the numerous pedagogical innovations it has implemented, the UGA competes with the greatest universities in the world. Qualified candidates interested in pursuing a dual Ph.D. in management with the University of Grenoble Alps (UGA) will be able to do so by having one of their co-advisers from the UGA and spending at least one year working with the UGA research team in France over the course of three years.
PhD students will submit a proposal to the UGA after their first year at BU. They will be admitted to the UGA’s Ph.D. program if their research proposal is accepted.
Both advisers (UGA and BU) will be present during the dissertation defense in France, and if the students succeed, they will be awarded a Ph.D. in Knowledge Management and Innovation Management from Bangkok University, as well as a Ph.D. in Management from the UGA (degree granted by the French Ministry of Education).
