The International in Business Administration PhD Programme, offered by the Faculty of Business and Economics from University of Pécs, combines the advantages of contact-based and distance-based education drawing on the contribution of recognized national and international experts. In its design, the programme combines two major international traditions in doctoral education such as the American tradition (where several years of formal education is needed to get the PhD) and the European tradition (by rule with a usually limited number of classes and a strong emphasis on independent dissertation research).
