More information



The Doctoral School of Management and Business Administration offers teachers and researchers, as well as students, the opportunity to obtain an academic degree and professional career. At the same time, the practice-oriented training also serves professionals in the business sphere in addition to students interested in research and professional careers. Doctoral degree graduates should have the ability to identify research trends and opportunities, venture into new research areas when appropriate, define long-term research objectives, formulate original research problems, and originate and develop solution methodologies. They should be capable of producing research output at a level that can either lead to publications in high-ranking scholastic venues, or to novel applications in relevant industrial, commercial, or other public sectors, or to other forms of useful knowledge transfer to society. The PhD Program prepares students for research and teaching careers at leading universities by developing the necessary skills for the design and execution of original, innovative research, and for the dissemination of knowledge through teaching and writing. Throughout the program, PhD students attain a deep understanding of the most influential research in the main academic business disciplines, as well as the tools needed to contribute state-of-the-art research to advance specific business disciples in the areas that include circular economy, sustainable development, digitalization, supply chain management, accounting, finance, organizational behaviour, enterprise development, and monetary policy.
