Doctoral Program in General Management in Europe

View PhD Programs in General Management in Europe 2018

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.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Doctorate Degrees in General Management in Europe 2018. The goal of the PhD programme is to prepare the next generation of leading researchers. The PhD is a programme of independent, self-directed academic research degree, supported by a team of supervisors that makes an original contribution to knowledge written up in a publishable dissertation. The PhD programme also supports the development of research and generic skills to equip you to operate successfully as a professional researcher in any setting. The essential requirement of a PhD is the creation of new knowledge. Being a researcher means developing new ideas and improving understanding through the creation of new knowledge. Your research will inevitably build to some degree on the work and ideas of others, but as a research student you are expected to make an original contribution to knowledge in your discipline. Each PhD student must take a number of online modules and also complete a dissertation. Students must defend their dissertation in a “viva voce” (spoken) examination. The viva voce examination is an intense and challenging experience, but we offer workshops and mock examinations to help our research students prepare and almost all research students who reach this stage go on to successfully complete their degree. Students can engage in research in one of the following fields of study: Marketing Management Information and Technology Education Business Administration Accounting and Finance Programme Outline Core Units UU-PhD-801 Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods UU-PhD-802 Current Issues in Management UU-PhD-803 Leadership UU-PhD-810 Marketing Management UU-PhD-MAR-900-1 Ph.D...
