The criteria established by the Academic Committee of the Doctoral Program in Economics and Business for the assessment of part-time PhD students enrolled in the program are the following: 

 

First Year Assessment [0-10]:

  • Proposed Research Plan [0-7] (Adequacy in respect to the Program, concision, level of detail and feasibility will be assessed)
  • Training and complementary activities [0-1.5] (This refers to complementary training activities aside from the ones that may have been established by the Program Committee for students during the first year, in any. They are obligatory, and students who fail to carry them out or who fail these activities will not pass the first year assessment.)

 

Second and Third Year Assessment [0-10]:

  • The same criteria as the one for second-year full-time students 

 

Assessment of fourth and fifth year [0-10]:

  • The same criteria as the one for second-year full-time students 

 

Lastly, the Doctoral Program Academic Committee has determined that for the defense the doctoral thesis must have had a research paper published in a JCR indexed journal (SCI or SSCI), or have a research paper accepted for publication in one of said journals, the contents of which stem from the research carried out during the doctoral thesis process.

It is very important that the students appear as first or second author of said articles and that they clearly specify, as their affiliation in the paper, that they are enrolled in the University of Malaga Doctoral Program in Economics and Business.
