Martti Ahtisaari International Doctoral Scholarship Programme

Martti Ahtisaari Institute launched in 2012 a scholarship program for doctoral researchers, called the Martti Ahtisaari International Doctoral Scholarship Programme. Several doctoral researchers have been selected as grantees to the program on an annual basis.

The program is meant to support high-quality scientific research on global business and economy, but also to help establishing international research contacts and conducting international collaboration. Many of the grantees of the program have themselves been international doctoral researchers. The scholarships have been spent in many cases for research visits to foreign institutions and for other joint international research activities.

The grantees carry out doctoral studies and research that focus on sustainable businesses and changes in the global market and economy. The disciplines represented by the doctoral researchers have included accounting, economics, financing, management, international business, marketing and logistics.
