Doctorate Degree

As the academic affiliate of the European Global School (EGS) – PARIS in Thailand, Bangkok School of Management (BSM) serves as the official support center for EGS to offer opportunities for well-grounded and experienced professionals in various specialization fields of study and/or career to benefit from its Doctorate-through-Research (DTR) and/or Doctorate-through- Publication/Portfolio (DTP) programmes.

The DTR and DTP programme allows those professionals who have not followed the traditional academic route toward a doctorate degree to nevertheless obtain the highest academic recognition for having undertaken and produced practically-based innovative research, and independently developed their research and other related analytical problem-solving skills and subject knowledge up to the Doctorate level.

This may also include professionals entering higher education in mid-career, especially in practice-based disciplines such as management, education, public health, psychology, business administration, commerce, law, sciences and much more.
