The Doctoral Proceedings

The Graduate Board implements the official regulations for awarding doctorate degrees of the Department of Business Administration and Economics. Mainly, three formal steps of the doctoral proceedings go through the Graduate Board.

  1. Application of acceptance as a doctoral candidate (limited up to 2 years)
  2. Application of prolongation of acceptance as a doctoral candidate (limited up to 4 years)
  3. Opening of the doctoral proceedings

The Graduate Board meets about three times per semester. For each step of the doctoral proceedings several documents need to be submitted two weeks before the meeting is taking place. More detailed information can be found in the restricted area of the downloads.
