Eurasian Doctoral Student Academy (EDSA) was founded and established as an academic initiative with the view of assisting Doctoral Candidates, encompassing both Ph.D. 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 Student 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.

In recent years, Consulting Higher Education Institution has, however, become yet another of EDSA’s core activities.  EDSA has a number of universities and institutions on its list of clients, consulting them in accreditation, internationalization, design of new academic programs, creation of in-house Think Tank and research centers, providing PPDP and Executive Education among other services provided.

EDSA offers a platform for exchange of ideas and facilitates cooperation and networking amongst the candidates.
