Business School at Umeå University – Research and Innovation in Collaboration

The vision of the Business School is to combine scientific excellence with benefits for society and the collaborating organization, while at the same time providing high-quality training for new researchers.

The graduate school is open to all research areas and the doctoral student is employed at Umeå University. Together with a company or organization, doctoral students spend four years exploring an issue. Both university researchers and potential external partners can initiate a PhD project. The projects are of high scientific quality and social relevance, which creates the conditions for competitiveness and development, according to Umeå University, which invests large sums every year in the Business School. The research projects are jointly funded and the external partner provides 50% of the doctoral student’s salary.
