Although Research and Academia is still in France a prominent career for PhD candidate, they can now move into a wide range of occupations and careers sectors. There is now a more comprehensive evidence of the value of doctoral students for society at large.

PhD graduates have many transferable skills that make them attractive to companies and employers. Students often take those skills for granted, but are in high demand by employers. Skills include creative thinking, problem solving ability, self-motivation, time management and team work. In other words, they are more professionally mature.

PhD students have a lot to offer. But they need to be able to confidently identify, articulate and also complete their skills, if needed. This is the purpose of the CBA.

The clear trend for companies to become more research oriented is opening opportunities for new, secure and well paid jobs in private as public organizations as well.

Doing a CBA program at CFDIP is an interesting way to boost chances of landing a non-academic job. CBA is a unique opportunity to design a career option outside academia. Each year the CBA concentrate a rich panel of students of more than 20 nationalities from 32 PhD schools. A year cohort usually count 60 PhD Students.

Certificate in Business Administration from a performative point of view :

Giulio Boato"My name is Giulio, I’m a PhD student in performance studies in Paris 3 university. 3 years ago I founded my own theatre company, for which I’m working as a director and dramaturge. I had no leadership experience before, so I’m learning by doing: managing people and projects, organising the work, planning, communicating… Slowly, I’m developing these skills, together with my associates. But there is a whole part that is still Chinese to me: financing, fund raising and selling...

This one week of CBA experience pointed out useful information to me. In one hand, it made me aware of the skills I’m developing by leading my theatre company. In fact, by working in team with the other members of the CBA group I realized that communication could be nowadays one of my best skills. This doesn’t mean I do not have to improve it, on the contrary: as I like it, it’s a field that I could develop even outside my company, in other domains.

On the other hand, CBA showed me that some skills I don’t have are fundamental to lead a company: this means that, to make my company efficient, I should find people who could deal with those skills. In the end, the most important lesson of this CBA session is for me the team work: how to deal with it, organise and share tasks, take advantages of all the different competences in the group. I was lucky to have skilled partners, who work in completely different fields than mine, and still find a synergy between us.

I would like to thank all the organisers: you have a done a very good job. I guess will really see the results in the future."

Les détenteurs d’idées et connaissances peuvent contribuer à l’enrichissement des organismes et ainsi raccourcir les délais de développement. Puisque, la valeur d’un organisme repose de plus en plus sur ses actifs immatériels, il est donc vital de comprendre les interactions et intérêts des acteurs de l’écosystème innovation. L’inventeur doit donc acquérir des réflexes en s’appropriant des outils et adoptant une démarche proactive pour protéger et valoriser sa propriété intellectuelle.
