Doctoral Community

Join EFMD’s community of professionals in charge of the management and administration of Doctoral Programmes.

Whether we talk about PhD, DBA or other professional doctorates, doctoral studies are an essential cog at universities and business schools in terms of their contribution to research and teaching. Because of this, institutions endeavour to develop doctoral programmes that produce thoughtful leaders bringing dynamic solutions and positive change in our uncertain world. Those researchers require attention, care and support.

The doctoral programmes' community is the place to share experiences, challenges, and successes that nurture this particular relationship.

EXPERIENCES

Dissemination and experience sharing are important parts of your jobs, whether in research or supervision. EFMD has a range of vectors to support this dissemination, from our blog to our Global Focus Magazine, which now includes a yearly research special issue.

Doctoral Programmes Conference

For professionals in charge of the management and administration of Doctoral Programmes.

Doctoral students are the centrepiece of universities’ research impact and contribute to the society as the next generation of researchers, scholars and leaders. Accordingly, institutions strive to develop doctoral programmes that shape intellectual challengers that generate powerful solutions and promote positive change in an uncertain world.

The EFMD Doctoral Programmes Conference delivers an opportunity to explore trends in doctoral education and assess challenges and opportunities from the perspective of experts and peers. Over three days, the event dives into different topics such as doctoral training and supervision, research mobility and placement, the nature of the curriculum and international cooperation.

The conference welcomes professionals in charge of the management and administration of doctoral programmes (PhD, DBA, or other professional doctorates)  and their teams.
