Overview

Key Features:

  • The Faculty of Business and Economics PhD program from University of Pécs established its International PhD Program in Regional Development for professionals who have collected several years of experience in their field working at national, regional and local levels of decision-making or at think-tank organizations. 
  • The International PhD Program in Regional Development belongs to the Doctoral School of Regional Policy and Economics and as such, it is a nationally accredited doctoral program in Hungary.
  • The aim of the Regional Development program from University of Pécs is to train high-quality professionals in the field of regional development. 
  • This aim is achieved by a well-structured program that provides strong theoretical base and at the same time supports independent research under expert supervision and by regular feedback. The international network of the School and its professors provides many more opportunities than lectures only; the best students can apply for travel grants to conferences and for abroad scholarships to our partner institutions or they can be involved in some of the international projects of the Faculty and its center of excellence, the Regional Innovation and Entrepreneurship Research Centre.
  • To serve this aim the Program supports independent research by providing experienced faculty supervisors and professional feedback at dissertation seminars. From the very beginning, the Program provides methodological and practical support for individual research.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The International PhD Program in Regional Development combines the advantages of contact-based and distance-based education drawing on the contribution of its recognized national and international faculty. 
  • The educational period consists of four semesters. 
  • Though subjects are partly delivered in block teaching, there is a continuous consultation between the students and their supervisors that requires personal attendance throughout the semesters.
