The PhD programme in Business and Management aims to prepare students to carry out high quality research in management and business related areas. In order to achieve this goal PhD students take courses in research methodology and subject area topics. These courses are designed to inform students of the latest research in that area. During the seminars interactive discussions are held with active participation of students. Each course ends with an exam. After completing the course work, PhD candidates go through a comprehensive exam as part of the requirements for the doctoral degree.
PhD candidates need to demonstrate their ability to conduct high level research work. The dissertation has to include original empirical research. The dissertation has to be defended in front of a reviewer committee during an open session.
PhD students are attached to a research supervisor from the very beginning of the programme. It is the task of the supervisor to advise the PhD candidate during the education, research and dissertation phase.
