a high-quality environment for research

a high-quality environment for research

During my master’s degree, I became increasingly interested in doing research, and after submitting my thesis, I felt that I was not entirely done with the topic.

"I wanted to investigate further, and proceeding with a PhD degree seemed the natural choice for me. Both on a national and international level, NHH houses a high-quality environment for research in and teaching of professional and intercultural communication.

Admittance to this programme enables me to take my research and my academic career to a new level. I get multiple opportunities to meet leading researchers within my field and to become a part of an international research community. The working environment at NHH is an open and friendly one. If I have a problem or a question, colleagues both at my own department but also at other departments are always willing to help.

I also received ample opportunity to acquire and develop non-research related skills by for example being a member of the department board or organizing a PhD course. I recommend the programme to anybody who is interested in developing excellent and sound research skills, and who wants to work in a supportive and inspiring environment."
