Since 2013, we have been running the Claussen-Simon Graduate Centre at HSBA together with the Hamburg School of Business Administration (HSBA). The doctoral students there complete doctorates parallel to their professional careers and conduct research in the fields of business administration and economics. They are supervised by professors from the HSBA and receive their doctorates from the HSBA's partner universities in Germany and abroad. By participating in Expert Seminars, Moderated Case Discussions and Member Presentations the doctoral students engage in active academic exchange. Doctoral students at the HSBA Claussen-Simon Graduate Centre also benefit from the Dissertation Plus programme, i.e. the mentoring system and various Stiftung events.
