RESEARCH AND DOCTORAL PROGRAM
STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP
Develop an understanding of the main internal and external factors that influence today's businesses in the tourism and hospitality industry.
Our Doctoral program is based on case study methodology in business research. In additional to scholar cases developed internationally, real-life cases must be brought by each candidate from their own business or industry. After 3 years (8 weekends per year) of research and analysis, candidates will write their final dissertation in their chosen field, with the option to choose their native language. BVIS helps candidates to publish doctoral dissertations, advanced case studies, scholarly articles and specialized books.
Doctoral graduates develop advanced skills in critical thinking, intensive research, data collection, and scholarly writing. They gain a solid business background and study influencing factors in their chosen field. BVIS regularly welcomes professionals and academic faculty from leading universities who wish to spend a period of time pursuing research on any of the above topics.
