New Bocconi PhD Graduates Eye Academic CareersFOUR YOUNG BOCCONI DOCTORATE HOLDERS IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND MANAGEMENT HAVE STARTED THEIR SELECTION PROCESS
Four recent Bocconi PhD graduates in Business Administration and Management are making their first steps on the academic job market. Universities have now posted their open positions for young researchers. Over the summer, applicants have been in touch with universities for a short introductory interview taking place at the main field conferences, which have almost completely resumed in person. As a result of these preliminary meetings and the in-depth screening of their profiles, universities evaluate whether to invite candidates to deliver a presentation or a seminar, called “flyout”, which is the final and most important moment of the process. Bocconi candidates have now reached this crucial step, as they have already received or are in the process of receiving flyouts.
