The doctoral programme offered by DOBA Business School is intended for individuals who wish to develop their academic career or be active in research organisations, as well as for individuals wishing to work in research centres/departments within companies or in excellence centres which represent a link between the economy and the academic sphere and which focus on facilitating the concentration of knowledge in priority areas.
The programme is intended for individuals with an affinity for autonomous scientific and research work and for the solving of complex theoretical and practical problems from the field of innovation and sustainable business management and for those who wish to successfully implement new knowledge and solutions and thus contribute to economic development and social progress.
As innovation is not exclusively linked only to entrepreneurship and since especially innovation directed towards the development of new services, new management systems or new organisation processes is increasingly present also in the public sector and non-profit and other organisations, the doctoral programme is appropriate for a wide range of experts. The interdisciplinary view of the concept of innovation and sustainable business management can be applied to numerous research challenges that concern diverse fields and disciplines such as business sciences, economics, marketing, education, social activities, and others.
