Before submitting your application, you need to choose a potential supervisor and the research focus of your dissertation (topic).
Each PhD candidate is required to contact a potential supervisor to discuss the research focus of the dissertation. They will then prepare a dissertation project of 8-12 pages on the chosen topic, which is included in the application form (Conditions for admission to doctoral study programmes at the Faculty of Economics and Administration).
If the doctoral candidate wishes to develop his/her own topic as a dissertation, he/she may submit it for approval to the relevant departmental board, in consultation with the potential supervisor, no later than two months before the application deadline.
Detailed information on cooperation between students and supervisors can be found in the Supervisors Guide.
