MBA Fundamentals Program for KSOP Doctoral Researchers

The MBA Fundamentals Program for doctoral researchers puts you in the position to gain management expertise while still working towards your PhD.

Doctoral researchers often benefit from knowledge on management topics at an early stage of their career.

Management expertise often has a positive impact on the career possibilities, especially when switching from academia to industry.
