Program Description

The general aim of the Doctorate Program in Business is to ensure that students have the highest level of theoretical knowledge in the field of management and organization and a general knowledge base in business functional areas such as human resources, marketing, finance, and quality management. It also aims to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills to understand and apply contemporary research methods that can be used to solve business problems and to provide creative and change-focused solutions to these problems. Additionally, it seeks to prepare graduates to effectively convey the subjects of management and organization to their students as potential faculty members.

In our Doctorate Program, we offer training that allows students to increase their theoretical knowledge, evaluate developments in international markets with a global perspective, possess both theoretical and applied foundational knowledge, and design academic research through extensive research methodology training. Students who successfully complete their doctoral education in business can find employment in the public and private sectors, in administrative units of civil society organizations and similar institutions, as top-level managers, or they can become academicians in universities.
