The doctoral programme leads into the world of research. Research means asking questions to which satisfactory answers have not yet been found. In the doctoral programme, independent research work is carried out. The doctorate is proof of the research competence acquired. Doctoral students can carry out this research work at the institutes and chairs of the University of Liechtenstein or, under certain conditions, outside the University of Liechtenstein.

The doctoral programme can be carried out in the fields of architecture and spatial development as well as economics.
