About the fair


The [email protected] Job Fair and Conference for PhDs in Business and Management is a 2-day event that brings together job-seeking PhD candidates in Management (all areas) and faculty and recruiters from European and international business schools and universities.

How does it work?

In the morning, the candidates present their job market paper to recruiters in a 15-minute research presentation, followed by 5 minutes Q&A session. In the afternoon, the recruiters schedule on-site interviews with the candidates they are most interested in.

Why ?

This Fair is the first event of this kind in Europe, gathering PhDs from all areas in Management and recruiters from the most prestigious European and international schools.

For the inaugural event in 2016, some 50 schools sent their representatives, recruiters and students, to take advantage of this opportunity. China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), Monash Business School, Audencia Business School and IE Business School,, just to mention few of the recruiting schools, interviewed talented young researchers to complete their academic team for the academic year 2017.

Better let the participants speak about their experience with the event:

This PhD Job Fair was a great opportunity to discover and meet excellent PhD and DBA students from top European Business Schools. Audencia Business School has an ambitious recruitment strategy over the next years. While we are mainly looking for experienced faculty members, we also want to give young faculty members the chance to integrate our school. Being able to discuss with so many good candidates in a short time during the fair, is a major advantage for me as academic dean for faculty and research. Furthermore, I encouraged some of our PhD students at Audencia to attend the fair, and their feedback was also very positive.

At the EFMD Job Fair, I had the chance to meet with schools from all over the world, from China over Australia to Colombia. The relatively informal character of the meetings allowed for an open and honest discussion of mutual expectations. I had the opportunity to introduce myself and my work to a variety of faculty members and made several valuable connections. Just a few weeks later, I’ve already made plans for ‘next steps’ with several of the schools I met and no doubt more are to come.
