Program Description

The student should develop applied and highly specialized competencies and practical skills in the acquisition, interpretation, comprehension, and application of marketing management principles. Through the Doctoral thesis, in which the qualification culminates, a qualifying student would show evidence of independent and original scientific work.

Qualifying students would also display competence in the application of related research methodology, and the proper written and/or oral communication of the research process and findings. The student should be able to reflect on his/her research decisions and applications, to assess the effect thereof in the holistic context of marketing management.
