About us

The PhD programme is comprised of four years of full-time study.

The overall path consists of research and teaching training, a visiting period abroad, and dissertation preparation. The first two years are dedicated to coursework.

Year 1 consists of disciplinary courses in management and research methods.

Year 2 is dedicated to courses on a chosen field of specialization, concluding with the development of a research proposal.

Years 3 and 4 are devoted to research and to dissertation preparation, culminating in the submission and defense of the thesis.

Along the entire learning path, students are also exposed to seminars and workshops on publication strategies and approaches to the international job market.

Please note that this educational structure may vary year per year, according to the students research needs and the Academic Board decisions.

The PhD training courses are also open to students enrolled in PhD programmes of other universities, upon payment of a fee.
