Research Master in Business and Management (ERIM)

By choosing a Research Master at the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM) you will follow a programme in Business and Management that is specifically designed for academically talented and motivated students who want to have a research-oriented education in one of the domains of management.

About the Programme / Mission

The Research Master in Business Research focuses on the state of the art in management and business research methods and techniques. Five different specialisations are offered:

  • Logistics and Information Systems
  • Organisation
  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • span>Strategy

The focus on the state of the art in methodology and techniques, combined with advanced courses in each specialisation field, makes this research Master the ideal preparation for a successful PhD at a top international business school/university or for a research position in a large company, consultancy firm, or institute for applied research. A maximum of 30 students is admitted to the programme each year. This relatively small number of students allows substantial personal interaction between the students and supervisors and significant customisation of the educational programme.

Career prospects

The main purpose of the programme is to train students for future academic positions in research in management. Students will be very well placed to continue their research activities in a PhD programme. Graduates who do not pursue a PhD programme will have developed skills that will ensure the successful start of a research oriented career in business, consultancy or applied research.
