Doctoral Studies in Management and Organization

Learning outcomes

The focal task of management and organisational research is to understand the activities and processes taking place in and among organisations. Individual activities of organisational members are studied from the viewpoint of managers and employees operating in a local and temporal context. The same applies to the processes in which individual organisations are aiming at particular targets under prevailing external resource and institutional constraints. As a result from this complicated and multi-faceted nature of organisations, the research conducted in Management and Organisation is usually multidisciplinary; sociology, social psychology, psychology and cultural anthropology are only few examples of the disciplines from which streams of theorising can be applied and incorporated into the field of management organisation studies.

With respect to doctoral studies in the subject area of Management and Organisation, one can specialise, for example, in organisational behaviour, human resource management or organisational theory. However, more important than putting much effort in choosing between different areas of specialisation, is the prospective doctoral student's desire to learn how to conduct high-quality academic research. In the end, this desire is the basis for an academic or more practical, yet intellectual, profession in the field of management and organisation. The supervising professors will guide and help the doctoral student towards these overall objectives, thus fulfilling their part in the creation of high-quality doctoral dissertations.


It is advisable to choose courses that support the topic your doctoral thesis. It is possible to negotiate alternative tasks or course works to substitute individual courses.

You can also include graduate level courses JOS3-JOS4 to your doctoral studies in case they were not included in your Master's degree.

You must choose at least two out of courses JOJ12, JOJ13, and JOJ15.
