    Programme Description

    The specialisation educates doctoral candidates to become researchers capable of exploring the challenging faced in entrepreneurial business and innovation policies. They will be able to contribute with new insights to the knowledge frontiers of international research.

    Our four-year specialisation in innovation and entrepreneurship is created to support willing and capable candidates to obtain a high quality research education that qualifies for academic careers at leading research institutions or as advanced specialists elsewhere. The programme focuses on developing the candidates´ theoretical and methodological capabilities and skills through careful research practice as well as theoretical studies required to become capable of disciplined and creative new theory creation.

    The programme seeks highly qualified candidates with background in disciplines that are relevant to studies of innovation and entrepreneurship. We require that all candidates have a sufficient knowledge of business management subjects to enter the programme. However, we also recognize and appreciate the relevancy and fertility of different academic disciplines to this area of research such as economics, finance, industrial organization, economic history, economic sociology and -anthropology, in addition to business management, science- and technology studies etc. This various theoretical and disciplinary approaches are reflected in the programme as well as among our faculty members. The programme will provide a basis for a mature and critical attitude through emphasis on in-dept empirical and theoretical studies.

    The doctoral programme is highly important to the department´s research agenda within areas of knowledge production that steadily has emerged as absolutely crucial to the modern world of business and society.
