Each year, several doctoral students join EMSBS's research centers under the supervision of one or more research lecturers. To help us get to know them better, these new PhD students told us a bit about their backgrounds and their respective doctoral projects.
"I graduated from the French University of Egypt with an undergraduate degree in management sciences. I did the first year of my master’s degree in human resources management at the University of Nantes and the second year in training management and quality at the University of Valenciennes. I worked in several companies in Egypt for more than five years, especially in the field of human resources management. I have been in the academic field for four years, since 2017, as a tutorial lecturer in HRM at the French University of Egypt before being accepted for a PhD in the same field at the University of Strasbourg.
I am passionate about human resource development and how companies can better advance if they factor the human aspect into their decision-making. My dissertation aligns with this objective. It explores the practices of deculturation in foreign call centers and the possibility of developing intercultural competence in these work environments. I would like to learn to what extent the imposition of a foreign culture and the need for emotional regulation enable the development of intercultural competence in foreign call center work."

"I studied at Sciences Po Strasbourg, where I obtained a masters’ degree in corporate strategy and finance in Europe. I had the opportunity to discover research when writing my master’s thesis on the gender gap in trust in banks.
I then decided to pursue my PhD at LaRGE. In line with my master’s thesis, my dissertation focuses on trust in banks. It is a key determinant of the effectiveness of the financial system. Trust in banks, by promoting the gathering of deposits and credit applications, ensures financial development. It also guarantees financial stability by reducing the risk of bank panic."
