Doctoral Research at the Faculty of Business Administration and Econonomics
The Faculty of Business Administration and Economics at HHU awards the academic degree of “Doctor of Political Science” (doctor rerum politicarum, Dr. rer. pol.) following due completion of the doctoral procedure. Alternatively, the title of “Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Business Administration” or “Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Economics” may be awarded at the doctoral researcher’s request. The doctoral achievements serve as proof of academic qualification for awarding of the doctorate. These comprise a substantial piece of written academic work on an economics topic (dissertation) and an oral examination (doctoral defence).
