The Károly Ihrig Doctoral School

In 1993, within the framework of the freshly launched system of doctoral training, the Agricultural University of Debrecen was accredited to train PhD students and to confer PhD degree in two branches of science – Agricultural Science and Economics. After 2000, the Doctoral School was operating in a multidisciplinary manner. The Doctoral School for Multidisciplinary Social and Agricultural Sciences adopted the name of Károly Ihrig in 2008. In 2010, the Doctoral School was awarded accreditation in management and business administration. The research field of the Doctoral School is built on the traditions of its legal predecessor (macro- and microeconomic, as well as rural development aspects of agribusiness). In a wider sense, the Doctoral School is active in the field of business/management/business administration. Over this period over one hundred students have received their PhD degree.

PhD Programme in Management and Business in English

The Programme Committee decided to launch the English language version of the PhD programme started  in September 2015.

In the last few years we have seen a growing interest to have doctoral studies in English at our University.
