The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

People who earn a PhD in business, economics and administration typically go on to teach in universities or perform statistical research for large organizations. Moreover, anyone with a PhD degree has the right to be addressed as "Dr."

Norway (Norge) is the westernmost, northernmost — and in fact the easternmost — of the three Scandinavian countries. Norway is well known for its amazing and varied scenery. The fjords in the west of the country are long narrow inlets, flanked on either side by tall mountains where the sea penetrates far inland. The ultimate responsibility for the education lies with the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

Bergen is located in western Norway and was established in 1070, it is said to be the international hub for aquaculture, shipping and petroleum and nationally it is considered to be the center of higher education, tourism and finance. The University of Bergen offers quality education here.
