New doctoral degrees bring industry, academia closer

By Francesca Sperotti – in University World News.

A new range of doctoral degrees that combine work and research have become available in recent years, but many people still do not know about their existence and the advantages they offer.

Over the last 20 years, new forms of doctoral degrees combining higher education studies with practical working experience have emerged. This is the case of professional or industrial PhDs-doctorates, which might be considered ‘modern doctorates’.

However, both at the international and the national level, there is insufficient awareness of the great potential that these educational paths could have as a lever for local development, competitiveness and innovation.
