The Coller School of Management is equipped to admit a limited number of doctoral candidates. Of those applicants who meet Tel Aviv University’s admission requirements only those with the talents and qualifications that fit in with the subjects of research that are of particular interest to the school will be considered.
The most natural candidates for admission are outstanding graduates of our M.Sc. program who intend to continue their research in their chosen area of specialization and are well known to the school’s faculty members. At the same time, the school is also interested in other outstanding candidates, including:
- Holders of a master’s degree with thesis in a discipline relevant to business administration
- Holders of an MBA who can demonstrate research ability
- Holders of a master’s degree with or without thesis in allied fields, either disciplinary or professional (for example, engineering or medicine)
- Outstanding holders of a bachelor’s degree from the Coller School of Management or in an allied field, who may be considered for a direct path to a doctoral degree.
