 Part-time doctoral programme

 
 
 
Doctoral Programme in Economics, Finance and  Management lasts 4 years and offers doctoral degrees in economics, management or finance. All lectures and workshops are taught in English and take place on Saturdays and Sundays, approximately twice a month.
 
During the 1st and 2nd year of studies doctoral candidates will participate in an intensive curriculum of lectures and workshops split into five thematic blocks:
  1. General subjects – including the most noteworthy current topics from economics, management theory and sociology, with specific focus on transitional economy problems, globalisation and major concepts from the works of selected Nobel-Prize winners in economics.
  2. Specialization subjects – students may select either international economics or international management or finance track, depending on their intended dissertation topic. Here focus will be on presenting current state of scientific research in these areas.
  3. Research methodology  –  a selection of works hops teaching students how to design and execute a research project in economics and management using a wide variety of research methodologies and techniques from qualitative and quantitative approaches.
  4. Skills building – how to organize a work in a research team, how to write scientific text in English, how to efficiently organize individual work on dissertation and prepare for public defence of PhD thesis.
  5. Attitudes building – axiology, ethics in scientific research and business.
The 3rd and 4th year of the Doctoral Programme will be entirely focused on preparation of doctoral dissertation based on work with individually assigned supervisors and specialization seminars.
 
Specialization seminars - an opportunity for students to present elements of the Ph.D. thesis to a group of professors specialising in a given discipline and hear comments from them. The aim here is to increase students’ motivation and improve quality of work they deliver.
 
Individual consultations with supervisors – to provide regular and intensive contact with supervisors. It is crucial that Ph.D. students start intensive work on their dissertation as early as in the first semester and maintain a regular contact with their tutors so as to ensure fast and steady progress.
