The Doctoral Program in Business (DPB), awards the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree, which is founded the on desire to support the development of scholars who aim to make an original and worthwhile contribution to business knowledge. It is a fulltime PhD program following the British doctoral study model where students are extensively trained to develop their full research potential and competency necessary to succeed in academia and consultancy-related careers.
PhD studies at TBS are intense and individual by nature. DPB students need to be independent critical thinkers since the Program is less structured in terms of formal teaching and coursework training. To ensure a rigorous foundation in business research, all DPB students are required to take research methodology courses, both quantitative and qualitative approaches, at the beginning of their PhD studies.
Each DPB student will be allocated academic advisors who are leaders in their respective business fields. They will play a pivotal role in providing support and substantive supervision, as necessary, to produce high quality academic research that is recognized in the international arena.
