Beta offers its PhD students an education program that enables them to become qualified researchers in Operations Management, either at academic institutes or at business research institutes. The PhD training program consists of a course part, which gives the PhD student state-of-the-art knowledge about his/her research field, and of a research part, that is carried out independently by the PhD student, under the guidance of a supervisor. The PhD student reports his/her findings in a PhD thesis.
As of January 1, 2017, the norms for finalizing an individual education program have changes. All PhD students who joined Beta after January 1, 2017 do not have to complete a specified education course program.
