Responsible Doctoral Programmes for a Responsible Future

The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated and made visible social divides followed by calls for a more sustainable and responsible recovery from this crisis. But what does this mean for doctoral education? How can our doctoral programmes meet these calls and prepare our graduates for a more responsible future?

Looking at responsible doctoral programmes for a responsible future has never been more pertinent. The number of doctoral graduates worldwide has significantly increased over the last two decades (OECD, 2016) while at the same the time the value of a doctoral degree is questioned as e.g. The Economist states that ‘doing a PhD is often a waste of time’ (Dec. 2016). Doctoral candidates have faced challenges and hardship during the pandemic and doctoral programmes have to address them. We therefore decided to continue with the theme of “Responsible Doctoral Programmes for a Responsible Future” for the upcoming EFMD Doctoral Programmes Conference.

Learn more about the timely and relevant programme and let us also tell you the format that EFMD has developed over the past months of pivoting to virtual events: three half days to fit in all agendas with sessions configured to maximise content learning, experience sharing and authentic networking.

So don’t wait to register for what promises to be the best-attended EFMD Doctoral Conference ever. Plus, you can still benefit from the early bird price until 9 April.
