Program description

PhD in Regional Development

The Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Pécs established its International PhD Program in Regional Development for professionals who have collected several years of experience in their field working at national, regional and local levels of decision-making or at think-tank organizations. The International PhD Program in Regional Development belongs to the Doctoral School of Regional Policy and Economics and as such, it is a nationally accredited doctoral program in Hungary.

The aim of the program is to train high-quality professionals in the field of regional development. This aim is achieved by a well-structured program that provides strong theoretical base and at the same time supports independent research under expert supervision and by regular feedback.

The Program is designed to help students acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for writing good quality doctoral dissertations. To serve this aim the Program supports independent research by providing experienced faculty supervisors and professional feedback at dissertation seminars.

The International PhD Program in Regional Development combines the advantages of contact-based and distance-based education drawing on the contribution of its recognized national and international faculty. The educational period consists of four semesters. Though subjects are partly delivered in block teaching, there is a continuous consultation between the students and their supervisors that requires personal attendance throughout the semesters.
