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.

The term “professional studies” is used to refer to academic programs that are designed to provide as much preparation as possible for the workplace. Students may learn about a specific industry or general professional concepts, as well as important career skills.
