The program typically involves seminar participation (120 hours are devoted to seminars dedicated to research training, methods, discipline content and research ethics), individual research and research community engagement. Projects are undertaken in collaboration with a thesis director and candidatures are approximately three to four years in length. Candidates can expect to work closely with their thesis director and will be required to orally defend their findings at the conclusion of their candidature. Completion of the thesis and the oral defence then leads to the State awarded title of doctor. Projects and the defence can be undertaken either in French or in English. International applications to the doctoral program are encouraged and we welcome projects that have a specific regional or cultural focus.
In line with our mission to develop boldness, excellence, openness and responsibility among our graduates, IMT-BS strongly encourages applications that advance brave ideas, truly novel concepts and highly lateral possibilities that take advantage of inter-disciplinary frameworks and methods.
