ABOUT THE JOB FAIR

Co-founded in 2016 by EFMD and the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management, the Job Fair for PhDs in Business and Management is a two-day event that brings together job-seeking PhD candidates in all areas of management with faculty and recruiters from international business schools and universities.

During the first three editions, more than 100 schools from all over the world sent their representatives – recruiters and candidates – to take advantage of this opportunity. Among them, China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), Monash Business School, Audencia Business School and IE Business School.

TARGET GROUPS

Recruiters
Recruiters from international business schools and universities looking for entry-level faculty to complete their academic teams.

Candidates
Final year PhD students or PhD graduates in all areas of business and management* seeking an academic career.

* Accounting, Finance, Information Management, Management (Organisation), Managerial Economics, Marketing, Operations Management, and their sub-areas.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Job fair takes place in two phases:
  • In the morning, the candidates present their job market paper to recruiters in a 15-minute research presentation, followed by a 5-minute long Q&A session.
  • In the afternoon, the recruiters schedule on-site interviews with the candidates they are interested in.

“The quality of the candidates, many from beyond Europe and almost exclusively with or about to obtain doctorates from some of Europe’s top business schools, justified such a long trip from Malaysia. Whilst my task of recruiting 21 new research-active academics before the end of June was a nice problem to have, it was a problem nonetheless and to find so many potential entry-level candidates in one place was an opportunity not to be missed. ”

“My experience at the Job Fair was amazing. I appeared at several interviews, interacted with many representatives of business schools and made connections with PhD Candidates from other business schools. I am glad to inform you that one of my interviews at EFMD Job Fair became the foundation of a job offer from NEOMA Business School, which I have accepted. So for me, the Job Fair was a success. Thank you for arranging and coordinating such a wonderful event.”
