The programme

It is aimed at individuals who are already working in a research capacity at a higher education institution or a research establishment and wish to earn a PhD qualification which will help advance their careers. 

It is also aimed at persons who have a research Master’s qualification and wish to complete a PhD program in order to embark on an academic career. Program participants have the option of specializing in business administration, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Management, Healthcare Management, or any other area of management for which the Institution has adequate thesis supervision capacity among its faculty members.  

The PhD in Management from CASS Europe will equip students with the necessary analytical skills for carrying out high-quality research in management. It is structured in such a way that enables students gain experience rapidly in presenting their ongoing thesis research in seminars and workshops. All enrolled students in the program are expected to make presentations in these research seminars and workshops at least twice a year. 

The seminars and workshops provide students with the opportunity of presenting their ongoing research and obtaining feedback from their peers, faculty members, and invited guests.

In exchange for the allocated partial scholarship, the participant may be asked to provide administrative support to the program.
