Doctoral degrees at the School of Business, Economics and Society

The doctorate is the research-oriented deepening or supplementation of an already completed university degree with the aim of making an independent contribution to research and thus acquiring an increased ability to argue scientific arguments. In principle, the doctorate consists of the independent preparation of a doctoral thesis (which usually consists of several essays) and an oral examination. The doctorate is awarded upon successful completion and publication of the doctoral thesis. Each year, about 80 doctoral candidates successfully complete their doctorate at the School of Business, Economics and Society.
