Doctoral degrees at the School of Business, Economics and Society
A doctoral degree builds on a completed university degree and involves in-depth research with which doctoral candidates aim to make an independent contribution to their field and develop their skills in academic argumentation. The components required to obtain a doctoral degree are a thesis that is completed independently (and generally consists of several essays) and an oral examination. A researcher who has successfully completed a doctoral degree and published their thesis is granted the right to use the associated academic title. Each year around 80 candidates successfully complete their doctoral degrees at the School.
