Department of Strategic Management and Globalization
As part of being committed to producing cutting-edge research, SMG puts a lot of emphasis on PhD education. SMG senior faculty are committed to allocate considerable efforts to secure funding of scholarships and to teach, supervise and in other ways support our PhD students.
SMG hosts all types of PhD projects. Regardless of the type of finances, in allocation of the primary supervisors SMG strives to achieve the “best match” in terms of the research interests, academic expertize, professional experiences, and time availability.
As SMGers, PhD students are expected to “deliver” on a high level, first and most of all in the research dimension, as research is what drives everything else we do.
Being a good PhD student at SMG means:
1. Being independent and self-driven. A PhD is a self-initiated project that the student needs to take responsibility for on his or her own. The supervisor is there to advise and guide, not to do the project for them. The PhD student is expected to be intellectually curious and interested in his or her own work.
2. Delivering on time and usually over-delivering. A PhD student should want to impress the faculty and will do this by doing their work carefully and precisely and by delivering more than what s/he is asked for (doing so will usually also motivate the faculty to invite the student to work with them).
3. Being a pleasant person to work with. A good PhD student gives the impression that s/he appreciates the time SMG faculty spend on them and welcomes feedback and professional advice.
4. Being a good colleague: Reaching SMG goals is a general responsibility of all SMGers. The goals are collective ones and require collective efforts, team work and a good deal of collegial and pro-social behaviors. Reaching them is to the benefit of everyone in terms of careers, personal development, and job performance. But, everyone must contribute to maintaining and further improving the research-intensive, highly interactive environment and great social atmosphere that has so far characterized SMG.
