The outstanding quality of the doctoral program in Management of Technology and the excellent academic network of the professors enabled to achieve goals and to pursue the academic career. The doctoral program in Management of Technology is the perfect environment to reflect upon and plan entrepreneurial career.



The doctoral program in Management of Technology pools the resources of a variety of research units across EPFL’s faculties and colleges, including engineering, mathematics, financial engineering, and economics. This brings researchers from many fields together on the Management of Technology.

During their first year, doctoral students must take 16 of the total program requirement of 30 course credits.

To ensure that progress is made on all fronts, the doctoral program coordinator works side-by-side with the candidate’s thesis supervisor. The EDMT organizes the placement of its doctoral candidates, provides them with an administrative and intellectual hub on campus, and offers them a menu of advanced courses that broaden and deepen their knowledge.
