The GODI graduate school
The aim of the Decision-making and Organisation Sciences project is to bring together the doctoral training and research facilities of three associated establishments, in the spirit of the recommendations made by the Ministry of National Education for Higher Education and Research for thematic and multi-site PhDs:
- a management Grande Ecole, HEC Paris (Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales)
- an engineering Grande Ecole, Arts et Métiers ParisTech (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers)
- an independent public institution, the IAE de Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne (Institut d’Administration des Entreprises).
The Graduate School builds on established co-operation, based on the complementary relationship between existing courses and scientific expertise.
Its design gives it a distinctive position within the national and Parisian provision for training and research. The reorganisation of research expertise aims at complementarity and follows a thematic and cross-disciplinary, rather than single-discipline, logic at the centre of management sciences and in conjunction with other disciplines (cognitive sciences, sociology, engineering sciences, industrial economics, etc.).
The Graduate School seeks to:
- maximise the research capabilities and extend the scale of existing doctoral training by bringing together establishments with: complementary strengths; teachers keen to co-operate on the basis of a shared concept of research and previous co-operation between national and international scientific societies through masters degrees in Practical Organisation, The Science of Decision-making and Risk Management, and the School.
- receive into the heart of the School a growing number of young researchers in Management Science and the analysis of decision-making, in response to a strong demand from national and international markets, similar to that of the project’s collaborating institutions;
- facilitate scientific exchange between researchers in disciplines that are different but related to Management Science (analysis of decision-making, control and organisation of management, finance, marketing, human resources, strategy, etc.) to foster horizontal dialogue and interdisciplinary projects;
- offer a pro-active programme of research training through seminars in methodology, epistemology and (computer) modelling and regular research seminars in the above-mentioned institutions.
