Developed on the basis of the Hungarian PhD program of the Doctoral School of Business Administration, it is as such nationally accredited. The International PhD Program combines the advantages of contact-based and distance-based education drawing on the contribution of recognized national and international experts.
In its design, the program combines two major international traditions in doctoral education such as the American tradition (where several years of formal education is needed to gain the PhD) and the European tradition (with limited number of classes and a strong emphasis on independent dissertation research).
The Program is designed to help students acquire the knowledge necessary for writing a successful dissertation and it also supports independent research by providing experienced faculty supervisors and professional feedback at dissertation seminars.
The direct educational period consists of four semesters during which students are required to be on campus. During this period students spend each semester approximately 10 days on campus and attend and prepare for classes, consult their supervisor on their research topic and may do further research in the Library.
