The purpose of EDAMBA is to promote and facilitate cooperation within the European Doctoral Programmes Association in Management and Business Administration by providing and managing a network to exchange information, to exchange PhD candidates and to promote research cooperation.
In many ways, EDAMBA helps participating schools to increase the quality of their PhD programmes, as well as to create an environment of excellence with a European perspective, all the while pursuing diversity.

The ultimate goal is to have the EDAMBA network reach as far and wide as possible, while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the various programmes within the network.
