Eurasian Doctoral Summer Academy (EDSA)

Eurasian Doctoral Summer Academy (EDSA) was founded and established as an academic initiative with the view of assisting Doctoral Candidates, encompassing both PhD and DBA. The idea is to equip the candidates with tools for ensuring a high quality of their thesis in compliance with sound scientific method.  This is particularly the case where there exist differences in the way post-graduate studies are conducted in countries other than those of the Anglo-American academic traditions.

One of the main objectives of Eurasian Doctoral Summer Academy (EDSA) is to narrow these differences, and work towards a cohesive standardized and universally accepted code and conduct of research. This goal facilitates further dissemination of scientific work, as they enjoy generally accepted research methods, in top tier journals and as monographs with reputable publishing houses.

EDSA offers a platform for exchange of ideas and facilitates cooperation and networking amongst the candidates. As an independent academy yet with many Universities and Associations / Organizations as its partners, EDSA is held annually at various ‘Host Universities’ in different parts of the world.

Doctoral studies, encompassing both PhD and DBA, are ever more important in lieu of inflated academic degrees for both researchers and practitioners.  Hence, ensuring a high quality of the thesis in compliance with sound scientific method is vital.
