Dual Doctoral/Triple Master Degree Programs ( University of Groningen )

The dual doctoral degree program was initiated in 2006 by UCAS and the RuG (the University of Groningen, the Netherlands), aiming at enhancing the scientific research cooperation and academic exchanges by jointly cultivating doctoral candidates.

Each year, School of Economics and Management sends two joint PhD candidates to study at the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen (FEB/RuG). The candidates study at the RuG for two years, during which the RuG provides students with a scholarship of 1,600 Euro per month.After completing the credits and doctoral dissertations specified by both sides, students will obtain the doctoral degree from both UCAS and the RuG.

The RuG speaks highly of students from the School of Economics and Management, and therefore proposed to further expand the “2+2” Program into a “3+3” Dual-degree PhD Program in 2011, starting when students entering their master program.

All candidates admitted to the new program spend 3 years at the School of Economics and Management and 3 years at the RuG. More specifically, the new program begins with required first-year courses in various business areas at the School of Economics and Management; in the second and third year that follows, students will study at the RuG. Students will be awarded a master’s degree from the RuG once completing their master thesis and the required educational credits at the RuG. Next, students study at the School of Economics and Management for 2 years and the RuG for 1 year. After finishing the required course credits and dissertations from both UCAS and RuG, students will receive two Ph.D. degrees, one from UCAS and one from RuG. During the master period of the program at the RuG, RuG offers a scholarship to cover the living expenses (around 800-1000 Euro per month); During the Ph.D. period of the program at the RuG, RuG provides students with about 1600 Euro each month.

This new program was launched in 2011.
