Module coordination/Lecturers


Doctoral degree programme in Business Economics (01.09.2008)


Just as the doctoral consortium, the summer school serves multiple purposes in the students' education: Whereas the doctoral consortium aims at presenting the own work to an international audience, the summer school is supposed to deepen the students' methodological skills. In addition, working together with professors and PhD students from abroad also contributes to developing the students' social and communicative skills in an international and intercultural environment.

Learning Outcomes

The primary objective of the summer school is to get further insights into the research methods applied by the PhD students and to discuss evolving questions with other young scientists.


Lectures Method

In preparing their proposals and applications for a summer school, students will be assisted by lecturers of the Institute of Information Systems at the University of Liechtenstein. Accepted students will take part in the summer school. A reflection of the lessons learned at the summer school together with the lecturers is also part of the module.
