Next to acquiring state-of-the-art knowledge in their field through literature reviews, PhDs conduct original research, analyze data using different software, and engage in writing their dissertation.

During their academic training, PhDs become experts in critical thinking, complex problem solving, and efficient decision-making. Additionally, they learn how to be resilient and how to persevere through challenging times and failures. All skills that are dearly needed in the corporate world nowadays.
