Who are we ?


ECRICOME is a 20 years old consortium of major Business Schools in France (Grandes Ecoles) :

KEDGE Business School, ICN Business School, NEOMA Business School

These Schools all resort to common entrance examination for their different programmes.

For their research programme, and in particular for their doctoral one, they have decided to join forces in order to create the largest management research group in France.

THE UNIVERSA PHD PROGRAMME’S AMBITIONS

Within the finest European culture and tradition in research in the social sciences, The ECRICOME PhD UNIVERSA Programme aims to foster and flourish an innovative and ground breaking research agenda, both in respect to themes in study as in the application of research methodologies itself. Management research with the flavour of our typical Grandes Ecoles tradition : with and for management and business.

Management being an applied science, for The ECRICOME PhD UNIVERSA Programme its conceptual basis ranges as wide as from philosophy and anthropology, via sociology, organizational behavior up to economy. Cutting edge applied social sciences therefore needs adapted research approaches and methodologies. Without exclusion of any scientific approach, The ECRICOME PhD UNIVERSA Programme is particularly welcoming good qualitative work, with a high focus on field work, that can be highly experiential and could perfectly be constructivist.

Not only is the ECRICOME PhD UNIVERSA Programme the largest management research group in France, its ambition is also to become the most innovative one.
