This PhD embraces multiple fields of knowledge in the management sciences, such as Marketing, Finance, Logistics and Operations Management, Information Systems, Human Resource Management and Strategy.

The first year is dedicated to the acquisition of conceptual knowledge and the mastery of methodological tools. The focus is placed on qualitative and quantitative methods, research design, publication techniques, epistemology and the latest trends in the aforementioned fields of knowledge.

The completion of the doctoral thesis over the second and third years is accompanied by tutorial guidance sessions and a program of seminars with themes that are located at the points of bifurcation of the future in the related areas. In this context, research in frontier areas between Management Sciences and other disciplinary branches is privileged. Also presented are the courses of doctorates, doctoral students and external actors, national and foreign, who share their trajectories and experiences.

During their third cycle, doctoral students are invited and encouraged to publish and participate in international scientific conferences, organized in Portugal and abroad.

The PhD in Management from the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences - Universidade Europeia was accredited by the national agency in June 2013 and had its authorization renewed in 2018, for a period of 6 years (the maximum that the national agency A3ES can grant). In turn, the reduced clausus numbers, provide a ranking of high capacity candidates. Currently, this program has 13 completed theses and is attended by 23 doctoral students.

Professional Exits

This PhD provides training for research and through research, with the aim of preparing future doctorates for the exercise of high added value jobs in global companies, in research centers and in the areas of consultancy.

State-of-the-art pedagogical and didactic means

The Universidade Europeia offers advanced logistical and technological means. Electronic access tools (Campus Online; Blackboard), as well as the necessary software for research (IBM SPSS; MAXQDA; NVivo; Idea Puzzle) and a bibliographic collection in documentary and digital format with access to scientific reference publications (B-ON ) constitute some of the numerous instruments placed at the service of students.

A personalized accompaniment

At Universidade Europeia , the doctoral student is at the center. The reduced number of staff per class allows to accompany each student individually. The preparation of the doctoral thesis begins in the first year with the identification of the problem and the respective starting question. It follows the construction and execution of the project within the scope of scheduled tutorials.

A flexible program

The post-working hours and the possibility of choosing to attend full-time (3 years) or part-time (5 years) gives the opportunity to adjust the study cycle to the professional and personal reality of each doctoral student.

The teaching staff is made up of researcher professors, national and international, of high caliber, with extensive academic and business experience.
