Integrating doctoral research and teaching with technology: a case from a Finnish business school

Peter Zettinig, Katja Einola

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


Education is becoming a field where universities fight for the best students and donations, and sometimes existence, and PhD students compete against each other for scarce jobs. In such an environment, how do educators build a relevant doctoral training program to prepare a future generation of educators and researchers capable of conducting meaningful social research and finding their place in the volatile job market? In this chapter, faculty from Finland discuss how the use of technology-mediated communication enabled them to turn a master’s-level international strategy course into a shared laboratory that combined completion of doctoral research, teaching, course design and coordination, and assisted students to acquire practical leadership skills.
