The Doctoral programme in Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering aims to develop professionals who are able to carry out high-profile research in these fields at universities and international research institutions, manufacturing and service companies, regulatory authorities and other public bodies. The programme helps students develop a sound methodological background and multidisciplinary knowledge through courses designed to provide a range of perspectives, theories and approaches, a broad cultural foundation and the ability to study problems in an innovative manner, combining various analytical research techniques.
The commitment of the Department to this field of research, complemented by scientific cooperation, produces an ideal environment to acquire leadingedge knowledge and to cultivate their own research interests in a broad spectrum of research subjects. Ph.D. candidates are usually involved in multidisciplinary research that addresses significant emerging issues and challenges.
The preparation of a Ph.D. thesis is the qualifying activity of the Ph.D. programme. It allows students to develop leading-edge research competencies and to produce an original scientific contribution on a topic of significance for scientific debate and of interest for the business world.
For the three-year duration of their studies, PhD candidates may be supported by scholarships.
Scholarships vary from € 1000 to € 1500, the amount depends on the proposed research topic. Scholarship holders receive a tuition fees waiver; they will have to pay a small administrative fee for registration (€ 185,58 per year).
Those having benefited from a scholarship for a Ph.D. course, even partially, may not apply for a second time.
