In the coursework stage two compulsory courses and a minimum of two methodological courses from the doctoral programmes of the University of St. Gallen or the Global School in Empirical Research Methods need to be completed. After finalizing the research proposal, additional two doctoral colloquia/seminars need to be completed. An additional method course or seminar must be visited in either the coursework or research phase.
