The increasing complexity of the world needs people who are able to conduct theoretically grounded and scientifically based research and also make decisions based on the latest research knowledge. The doctoral program in Business at the Department of Business Administration prepares interested individuals to be successful researchers or to advance in their chosen careers.
Economics and Finance
The aim of the PhD study programme is to provide competences corresponding to the highest level of higher education for academic research, development, and creative activity, as well as for working as a top professional in the corporate/public sector and also provide social competences and ability to adapt to the rapidly changing world.
Public Policy and Innovation
Policymakers who are able to make broad-based decisions and researchers who create new governance-related knowledge are the foundation of national innovative capacity. The need for that kind of people is increasing - today and in the future, both globally and locally. If you wish to focus your research on a wide range of innovation and governance-related topics, you are welcome to the doctoral studies at the Ragnar Nurkse Department of Innovation and Governance.
