TIME-MBE PhD opportunities

TIME MBE students are regularly encouraged to apply for jobs and for posts that will further their entrepreneurial and managerial background. Space exploration offers such an opportunity.

The prestigious Toulouse Business School (TBS) has a team that conducts research activities applied to space sector. These works are implemented within the SIRIUS chair. SIRIUS is a research chair, based on an original type of public-private partnership between three leading operators in the global space sector (CNES, Airbus Defence and Space and Thales Alenia Space) and two respected higher education institutions: the Toulouse 1 Capitol University and Toulouse Business School. The SIRIUS team focuses particularly on the economic and managerial issues confronting space activities and, especially, those raised by the amplification of the commercialization of space.

In view of the above TBS is looking for a PhD student who will be involved in the SIRIUS Chair that conducts research activities applied to the space sector since 2013. This student will also be part of a research team on Entrepreneurship and Strategy which is one of the teams of the TBS Research Center. The PhD student will be enrolled in the Doctoral Program in Management Science of the Toulouse Business School and the Toulouse School of management.
