2 2 COLLABORATION WITH OTHER INSTITUTIONS The PhD programme in Economics and Business is a doctoral programme that will educate independent researchers of international calibre in conjunction with national and international research communities. There is a high level of collaboration between the various institutions awarding a PhD in economics-related subjects, and PhD students at NMBU s School of Economics and Business are encouraged to consider taking courses at other institutions in Norway and abroad. A large proportion of the PhD students at the School of Economics and Business take courses at other Scandinavian universities. SOCIETAL RELEVANCE The PhD programme is a doctoral programme that will educate candidates with expertise in economics and/or business. This is based on a broad definition of economics and business, including economics and business economics, entrepreneurship and innovation, organisation, management and strategy, and subgroups of these areas. PhD candidates will meet society s current and future needs for expertise in economics and business combined with excellent analytical insight. The programme will qualify candidates for posts at academic institutions, for positions within advisory services and analysis in the public and private sectors, and for work in large national and international organisations that demands greater competence than that offered by a master s degree.

5 5 EVALUATION OF LEARNING OUTCOMES The degree of philosophiae doctor (PhD) is conferred on the basis of: Approved completion of the required coursework An approved doctoral thesis An approved trial lecture on a specified topic An approved public defence of the doctoral thesis (disputation) See section 12. ACADEMIC CONTENT AND STRUCTURE The PhD programme in Economics and Business is based at NMBU School of Economics and Business. The programme is based on the general description of the PhD education at NMBU, and is regulated by the Regulations for the Degree of Philosophiae Doctor (PhD) at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. The programme has a nominal duration of three years. The programme consists of required coursework and a thesis. The course package must contain a minimum of 45 credits and is put together in collaboration with the candidate, the supervisor and the department (the research committee), depending on the subject area of the thesis and the candidate s background and needs. The coursework must provide knowledge about the forefront of research in the field, i.e. ongoing research and unanswered questions. Courses both at NMBU and other higher education institutions may be included in the degree. Students are also encouraged to spend one to two semesters at recognised universities abroad if possible. The thesis usually consists of 3-4 articles, and the candidate must demonstrate through the choice of analysis methods and research issues that he/she is capable of conducting independent research work of high quality. Publishing findings in prestigious international journals is an important goal. PhD students must submit annual progress reports on a standard form by 1 st of February every year. Deviations from the plan must be explained. The requirement of a progress report is set out in section 9.1. PhD students and supervisors share responsibility for progress. All PhD candidates must attend three regular seminars at the Department (see section 9.1): an introductory seminar after approximately 6 months, a midway assessment seminar after approximately years and a final seminar approximately 6 months before submitting the doctoral thesis. The midway assessment seminar must be carried out in accordance with section 9.2. The seminars are considered to be part of the required coursework and quality assurance of the PhD programme, and will give the students useful feedback for the work ahead. Research schools: The PhD education in Economics at NMBU School of Economics and Business is affiliated with the National Research School in Business Economics and Administration. This is a joint collaboration among the participating institutions to enhance the quality of the PhD education in economics-related subjects. Most Norwegian higher education institutions in the field of economics take part. PhD courses are offered as well as study groups and seminars, and an annual conference. The following subject areas are covered: economics, accounting, finance, operations analysis, marketing and international business, strategy and management. An overview of courses, enrolment (for PhD students) and activities is regularly updated at In addition, the universities that offer PhD programmes in economics work in close collaboration, and students have wide access to courses offered at other universities in Norway.

6 6 INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE The research community at NMBU School of Economics and Business has a large international research network, plays an active role in international research communities in its field and focuses on a range of international societal issues such as climate, the environment, development, and international commodities markets. A large proportion of the PhD students at NMBU School of Economics and Business school come from other countries. RESEARCH COMMUNITY LINKED TO THE PROGRAMME OF STUDY Principal supervisors for PhD candidates are appointed from among the department s associate professors and professors. Other researchers with relevant competence in the field may be appointed as co-supervisors, also from other national or international institutions. The principal supervisors must have positions at the associate professor level or above. All supervisors must have a doctoral degree or equivalent academic competence. NMBU School of Economics and Business does not as yet require formal supervisor competence, but all (recent) associate professors and professors who are permanent employees must have completed pedagogical training. RESEARCH WORK IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROGRAMME OF STUDY The research work shall be an independent, scientific work that meets international standards and is of high academic quality (section 10 of the PhD Regulations). The work will be planned and carried out in cooperation with the supervisors and any external partners. A realistic milestone plan must be drawn up, so that the work can be completed, and the thesis submitted by the end of the contract period. The principal supervisor has general responsibility for ensuring that the plan is realistic. The progress of the research work must be reported in the annual progress report. FORMS OF EVALUATION The required coursework is evaluated using different forms of evaluation such as an oral or written examination, submitting assignments or a term paper. The content of the doctoral work and the required coursework must be approved by the research and research education committee and the committee monitors progress by means of the annual progress reports and the compulsory seminars (introductory seminar, midway assessment seminar and final seminar). Other input to learning outcomes does not need to be evaluated, but the principal supervisor is responsible for ensuring that the objectives are met through relevant measures, academic discussions and steps towards dissemination work within the time frame of the doctoral work. THESIS AND PUBLIC DEFENCE The thesis shall be an independent, scientific work that fulfils international standards and is of high academic quality in terms of the formulation of research questions, the specification of concepts, the methodological, theoretical and empirical basis, documentation, the use of literature and the form of presentation. The thesis shall contribute to the development of new knowledge and must be of such quality as to qualify for publication as a part of the scientific literature in the field (section 10). The doctoral thesis must consist of at least three to four academic articles that can be published in scientific journals. One or more of the articles should be published or accepted for publication before submitting the thesis, but this often is not realistic within a three-year period. However, the articles must at minimum be of the same standard as a manuscript that is submitted to a journal for the first time. The PhD candidate must be the lead author of at least three of the articles. An exception may be made to this rule in the case of articles written by several PhD students. An introductory chapter must also be written, equal to about one work month, in which

7 7 the PhD candidate displays scientific insight and the ability to synthesise scientific findings and discussions from different articles. The PhD candidate shall write this section on his/her own. The thesis must also be written and submitted in accordance with sections 10 and 13.1, and uthorship declarations must be enclosed for each scientific article. The public defence will begin with a trial lecture on a topic that is assigned to the PhD candidate 10 working days in advance. The lecture must last 45 minutes, and be of a standard that corresponds to a lecture for master's degree students in the subject. The PhD candidate will then present his/her thesis and two external opponents will critically review the thesis, and assess the candidate's responses. The evaluation and the work of the evaluation committee must comply with the rules in sections 12 and 15. SUPPORT FUNCTIONS AND INFRASTRUCTURE NMBU School of Economics and Business has its own head of research education, appointed from among the department s permanent academic staff. He/she chairs the research education and research committee, which deals with applications for admission, programme descriptions and proposals for evaluation committees, and is responsible for monitoring the quality of and progress of the candidate's PhD education. The department s research education secretary, who is also secretary of the research and research education committee, carries out the day-to-day administrative functions in relation to PhD students and advises them on practical and formal matters. The School of Economics and Business offers PhD students office space in specially allocated PhD offices, with several students normally sharing an office. EXCHANGES NMBU facilitates national and international exchanges. Part of the doctoral work or doctoral courses may be taken at other Norwegian or foreign academic institutions when it can be incorporated into the plans, and funding has been secured.
