The Finance Phd program at Tilburg University has two phases: a preparatory Research Master combining intensive coursework and research that culminates in the writing of a Research Master Thesis and an advanced phase in which students devote all their time to research.

Christophe Spaenjers, Assistant Professor at HEC Paris

Alumnus Research Master in Business, specialization Finance

I got a top-quality graduate education, I interacted with world-class researchers on a daily basis, I could attend a weekly seminar series, I went abroad for research visits and conferences with the support of CentER, etc. All these things contributed enormously to the first steps of my academic career.
