Business and Law - Institutions and business: value, rules and social responsibility

Business and Law

PhD Programme


The PhD Programme in Business & Law has been established by the Department of Law in collaboration with the Department of Economics and Management.

Coordinator: Prof. Antonio Tencati (until A.Y. 2021/2022)

Coordinator: Prof. Nadia Maccabiani (since A.Y. 2022/2023, pending election)

Educational goals

Because of the current structural crisis affecting the global socio-economic system, a strong debate on the role of business in society has been taking place: in fact, innovative, more reliable business models and managerial approaches are badly needed in order to create value(s) for the different stakeholder groups. The new PhD Program in “Business and Law” aims to develop qualified scholars and practitioners capable of understanding the crucial importance of values, institutions, and rules if we want to foster really responsible and sustainable firms. 

Entry requirements

The PhD Programme is a III level study programme open to holders of II level degrees (Master of Science degree or similar academic qualification awarded abroad and considered equivalent in terms of duration, level and field of study).

Upon conclusion of the educational and research prospectus, after passing the final exam, the title of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) is awarded
