For a fifth consecutive year, the University of St. Gallen is extending scholarship opportunities to its two-week Empirical Research Methods Symposia in Switzerland, for doctoral students currently studying at GBSN member schools in Africa and the Middle East.
Following a competitive application process, four doctoral students from Strathmore Business School have been awarded scholarships to the 2018 Global School of Empirical Research Methods (GSERM).
The GSERM is a high-calibre integrated program teaching methodology for PhD students and postdocs from leading universities all over the world. The GSERM offers an attractive course-based learning atmosphere on different aspects of empirical research.
These GBSN scholars receive tuition and lodging during an invigorating week of honing their research skills with leading faculty.
Congratulations to the doctoral students from Strathmore Business School for being selected!
GSERM is structured in different modules. Participants select one course per week as these courses are taught concurrently.
GSERM courses are awarded 4 ECTS credits if exams/homework are successfully passed. GSERM courses are divided into different levels: basic, intermediate, advanced and research. Courses on research level (PEF-courses) are especially designed for PhD students in Economics with substantial background in quantitative methods.
If the exam is successfully passed the students will receive an official University of St. Gallen transcript.
