Doctorate in Projects

Presentation

The Doctorate in Projects program allows to take subjects and perform the Doctorate research within one of the lines of research that are offered, in accordance with an on-line education model. In this way, the Doctorate student takes part of an advanced postgraduate study that can adapt to one’s learning pace and working style.

During the program, the Doctorate student will have the support and advice of teaching staff, tutors and thesis directors who will ease the learning and academic performance in the subjects, research papers, and in the thesis thanks to the new technologies.

The Doctorate’s Committee will assign and supervise the study plan that will be appropriate to the training and thesis topic chosen by the Doctorate student. In addition, this committee will appoint a thesis director that will support and facilitate the studies and the thesis work of the Doctorate student.

Structure

LENGTH PURPOSE STUDY PLAN
Phase I, Teaching
1 year Acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to provide solutions that contribute to human development, scientific and technological development in the line of research of the Doctorate student. Taking on-line subjects defined in accordance with previous studies and with the thesis’ topic. In this phase, the Doctorate candidate must take the subjects that are appropriate to the chosen thesis’ topic.
Phase II, Tutoring
3 months Defining the thesis’ topic, objectives, hypothesis and methodology. With the support of a tutor, developing a proposal for the Doctorate thesis.
Phase III (Research)
1 year Developing the thesis. With the support of the Thesis Director, conduct research leading to the completion of the project.
Phase IV, Development of the Thesis
1 - 2 years. Drafting the Doctorate thesis. Under the supervision of the Thesis Director, the research will be developed: analysis and results achieved.

Educational Methodology

The educational model promotes collaboration and cooperation to enhance people’s education. This ensures a process that provides effective results with regard to the educational investment assumed versus the return in knowledge, personal and organizational learning. Nowadays, the educational model consists of many educational and pedagogical innovations that facilitate, strengthen and drive a formative process in a quality learning environment. This includes:

  • Making it easy for students, professors and both groups to be in contact.
  • Fostering cooperation and reciprocity: learning as a collective effort.
  • Considering the student as the center of the learning process in which the student actively participates.
  • Encouraging and promoting the continuous communication and interaction between professors and students.
  • Instilling that the training process implies and requires temporary dedication and continuous effort.
  • Using motivation as a constant stimulus so the student perceives that the expected learning results are achievable.
  • Personalizing the learning, taking into account the differences between students and their different ways of learning.

Diploma

The Doctorate student who meets the academic requirements and passes the Doctorate thesis’ defense in accordance with the rules of the universities which offer the Doctorate program, will get the following diploma:

  • Doctorate in Projects by the International Iberoamerican University (US and Mexico), indicating the line of research of the thesis.

Study Plan

Doctorate in Project > Teaching

The objective of the teaching phase in projects is to set the foundations which will be used to give a response to the complex reality of the resolution of problems from a doctoral level.

Modern society needs to solve many and various problems. In order to solve such problems, it is necessary to have an extensive, diverse, and emerging knowledge from the process itself and only one person cannot do so without a high consumption of energy and time.

The Doctorate program makes the Doctorate candidate to face this reality and submits it to a collaborative-cooperative work to solve a problem related to the line of research or to the Doctorate’s area of knowledge based on 3 axes:

  • (a) Knowledge generation,
  • (b) Production and use of scientific-research methodologies, and
  • (c) Production of solutions through networks of agents.
