    A project perspective on doctoral studies: a student point of view2017In: International Journal of Educational Management, ISSN 0951-354X, E-ISSN 1758-6518, Vol. 31, no 7, 908-921 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    Many doctoral students never obtain a doctoral degree, and many do not finish their studies in time. To promote aspects of effectiveness and efficiency in doctoral studies this article aims to explore a project perspective, more specifically how doctoral students experience their studies in terms of key dimensions of projects.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Written reflections concerning a project perspective in doctoral studies, based on 18 students at a Swedish university, have been categorised and analysed by means of the qualitative research software NVivo.

    Findings

    Main findings are: Reflections on the project manager role including both the supervisor and the doctoral student, and different views on project control parameters and the concepts goal-seeking and goal-orientation. A more comprehensive picture of project planning is presented, compared with the Individual Study Plan (ISP), including different project methods and tools that can be suitable in a doctoral project.

    Research limitations/implications

    The study is based on a limited number of doctoral students, however the aim has been to give examples of project perspectives. The findings could be valuable for increased understanding of doctoral studies and of the project management field in general.

    Practical implications

    The study can induce awareness among doctoral students and supervisors of a project perspective in doctoral studies, promoting aspects of efficiency and effectiveness.

    Originality/value

    Compared to previous research, this study explicitly tries to understand how doctoral students make sense of their doctoral studies from a project perspective.

    Who is engaging with whom?: Internationalizing opportunities for business schools in emerging economies2012In: International Journal of Educational Management, ISSN 0951-354X, E-ISSN 1758-6518, Vol. 26, no 7, 646-663 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the globalization of Business Schools and presents different strategies, issues and perspectives on how and why business schools are going global. This article explores various models for globalization, contrasts and integrates them, and then presents an approach to globalization that is within the reach of these smaller and less endowed schools. Design/methodology/approach - This paper reviews relevant literature and an analysis of exchange programs amongst the world’s leading business schools. Different aspects of the globalization of management education are discussed including internationalizing the curriculum, globalizing research agendas, and the impact of globalized competition. Findings - A framework has been developed that can be employed by business schools – especially in emerging economies – to internationalize themselves through their education and research programs. Recommendations are made for how business schools with limited resources can meet the challenge of offering the internationally oriented education experience increasingly demanded by employers and students alike.Research limitations/implications - Limitations to this paper results from the use of Financial Times top one-hundred ranked business schools. Aside from weaknesses inherent the rankings methodology, the choice of these business schools excluded hundreds of high quality business schools around the world – many of which are internationally recognized for quality. Furthermore the methodology of the scanning of websites of schools for types of collaboration agreements across borders might not give the full picture of agreements betweens schools. Practical implications - Originality/value - Although a considerable amount has been written about the globalization imperative facing business schools (with many illustrations of what could be considered best practice), there is a significant lack of information when it comes to the articulation of strategies and implementation challenges facing smaller and less well endowed business schools that want to globalize.
