The doctoral training is primarily provided by the teaching staff of Kaposvár University. In addition, researchers and professors from several other renowned Hungarian, and foreign, research institutes and universities participate in the work of the Doctoral School too.
The Doctoral School facilitates the further professional development of its best graduates, and equips them to be capable of carrying out independent scientific innovative work. Graduates obtaining their doctoral degree can successfully apply for jobs at higher scientific levels, requiring a broad theoretical and practical knowledge, offered by local and international organizations operating in various areas of the business sector.
The Doctoral School facilitates the professional and intellectual development of its most talented students in a wide range of fields. It guarantees a new generation of professionals, for our own institution and well as for other higher educational and research institutions. It produces innovative experts with PhD qualifications for the economic, social and R&D sectors, as well as for Hungarian and international organisations.
Kaposvár University's Doctoral School for Management and Organizational Science has been one of the most modern and innovative doctoral schools for many years. One of its unique strengths is in the fact that it transmits up-to-date, non-depreciating and applicable multi-and interdisciplinary knowledge to the students. The fields of study within the programme of the Doctoral School provide ample answers to current social and economic issues - i.e. the complex system approach to agriculture, regional and rural development, marketing, finance, and international relations.
The target of our research programme is to reveal the varied aspects in the development of agricultural economy, the triggers of European and Hungarian regional and rural development, the relationships in food marketing, as well as in the main issues of planning and analysis of financial processes in international contexts.
The doctoral education matches the research profile, thus it is aimed at the theoretical and methodological foundation of scientific research, and it focuses on the acquisition of modern synthesizing subjects within the scope of the social sciences, as well as on the learning of the fundamental elements of research methodology.
The students of the Doctoral School participate in research carried out at the departments of the Faculty of Economic Science, and in research carried out in cooperation with other organisations. The most outstanding students are involved in teaching too. All these factors contribute towards the development of the students' personality, professional outlook and contacts.
The doctoral education and PhD graduation are managed by Kaposvár University's Doctoral and Habilitation Council, in compliance with the requirements of the Doctoral Regulations. The Doctoral School's Council is there to assist in this work. The members of the Doctoral School play an important role in the scientific foundation, and in the high standards of the doctoral education and graduation.
