INFORMATION SESSION | Do you want to become a researcher in academia or the private sector? – Thursday 12 March 13.30 – 15.30
March 12 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Do you want to become a researcher in academia or the private sector?
The world of academia offers a wide range of opportunities, for example conducting research independently, working in international collaborations and educating the new generation of students. Are you interested in analysing big date to gain more insight into a company’s target audience or customers’ preferences, then a career in the private sector might be right for you. Whether in academia or in the world of practice both require a vast understanding of analytical and research skills. During this session, you will learn more about the trajectory you may follow if you want to discover the world of research and successfully complete a PhD programme. In addition to this, current PhD students will share with you their experiences. At the end of the session, there will be room for questions and discussion.
Members of the Management Team of the Graduate School of Business and Economics will inform you about educational possibilities and the different research themes at SBE. Former PhD candidates tell what it is like to be a PhD candidate and talk about their careers in academia and business.
Target audience: 2nd and 3rd year bachelor’s students, master’s students
