Programme Structure

The programme is geared towards developing strong research skills, engagement with different research methods, and becoming part of an international research community. Students in the programme are required to complete a rigorous curriculum that will support them in developing their own research questions and research interests in the field. Our students are also strongly encouraged to present their research at international workshops and conferences. In addition to coursework and research, students in the programme also have the opportunity to gain teaching skills, which allows them to have a well rounded academic experience.

Upon completion of the Doctoral Programme, graduates may pursue careers in academia, research institutions, or consulting firms. They may also be well-suited for leadership positions in HR departments or other organizational settings, where their expertise in HRM and OB can help improve organizational effectiveness and promote employee well-being.

The first year of the Doctoral Programme is a Master of Science, which allows for students to develop the necessary skills for PhD research as well as identify a research supervisor and develop their research project. After successfully completing their Master of Science, students are able to apply for funding to continue into the second year of the Doctoral Programme. Alternatively, students can choose to exit the Programme with their Master of Science. From the second year of the Programme onwards students work closely with their supervisors to deepen their understanding of the theory and methodology of their chosen discipline, conduct original research and form timely contributions to their field of study.
