International Doctoral Programme in Intercultural Relations and International Management

The Doctoral Programme in "Intercultural Relations and International Management" is a three-year multidisciplinary international doctoral degree coordinated by the Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma – UNINT, in partnership with the Universidade Estadual da Paraíba (UEPB). The Programme is designed to prepare highly qualified researchers and professionals with an extensive theoretical and applied knowledge of intercultural communication and cross-national management theories and practices, with a specific focus on the relationships between Europe and the most relevant emergent extra-European geographical areas increasingly gaining economic, cultural and political weight internationally..

Objectives

The Programme includes research and training in the areas of linguistics, management, and cross-cultural communication, in general providing doctoral students with a significant knowledge of the influence of economic, legal, social, historical and cultural aspects in the relations between nations.

Research topics included in the Programme are supervised by a Joint Teaching Committee and are designed to highlight different perspectives of the relations between Europe and one or more emerging areas. The official language is English. Five positions are available, four of which carry scholarships (of which one is reserved for the Universidade Estadual da Paraíba) and one is without. The admission procedures and selection criteria are defined in a specific call for applications, published annually, usually between June and August. Public administration employees may apply for the PhD programme and, if accepted may then request academic leave of absence for the duration of the programme.

Academic approach and research topics

The academic approach of the Programme is grounded on the idea that a current understanding of global relationships between different cultures requires a cross-disciplinary perspective and a combination of both theoretical and applied research. Research topics included in the Programme are supervised by the Joint Teaching Committee and are designed to highlight different academic and methodological perspectives.

In particular, research topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Linguistic, sociolinguistic and pragmatic analysis of communication in the fields of business, economics, political science, social institutions, etc.
  • Cultural diversity and its effect on intercultural communication;
  • International business, cross-border transactions, and trade relations;
  • Intercultural communication of human rights;
  • Cross-cultural management and negotiation techniques in intercultural settings;
  • International marketing;
  • Global history, public management, and foreign policies;
  • International political economy;
  • Comparative history of economic cultures;
  • The European economy in a historical perspective;
  • International legal issues and their impact on bilateral and multilateral relations.

Career opportunities

At the end of the Programme, doctoral students will be qualified for jobs in international business and organisations, including public institutions, supranational organisations, and multinational companies operating in Europe and/or in emerging countries. Upon completion of the Programme, former programme candidates may also be eligible for teaching and research positions in academia and other institutions of higher learning.
