The programme is based on individual, interpersonal forms of studying: seminars, workshops and summer schools; intended to provide the students with knowledge and experience in a active and direct way.

Although cooperation between supervisor and student is very much a joint decision, it is planned that most of the hours will be in the form of ONLINE SEMINARS. 

This formula is proposed to meet the needs of participants who are not able to visit Poland very often, as well as those who are very busy with their work, family or communities. 

Doctoral Seminars in English is a programme designed for students interested in preparing a PhD thesis in the area of Economics or Management. One edition of DSE lasts for 36 months
