EBHA prize for the best doctoral dissertation

Dear colleagues,

The European Business History Associaton awards a prize for the best dissertation published in the field of business history submitted to a European University every two years. The next prize will be awarded at the EBHA Conference this summer, and we are keen to encourage submissions from candidates who have obtained their PhD in the last two years. The deadline for submissions was originally 15 April, but this has now been extended to 30 April 2018.

It is perfectly possible for a dissertation to be considered for both the EBHA prize and the Coleman Prize simultaneously.

If you have had your PhD dissertation accepted in the last two years, or know of colleagues who are in this position, please do consider applying (or encouraging them to apply).

Further details on the prize, the submission process and the judging criteria can be found here:



With kind regards

Peter Miskell
