New report published at Inside Higher Ed shows increase in demand for PhD’s in developing countries.
Developing countries are striving to expand doctoral education, but may struggle to keep up with the demand for Ph.D.s.
That is the conclusion of a European Universities Association report on the first comprehensive survey of trends in doctoral education across East Asia, Latin America and Southern Africa.
According to the study, there is a striking convergence in national policies towards doctoral education both in those regions and within Europe. Not only has the number of doctorates awarded surged but countries and institutions across the world are seeking to boost them for the same reason to develop society, Thomas Ekman Jørgensen, head the EUA’s Council for Doctoral Education and the report’s author, told Times Higher Education.
Interesting bit of information fr PhD Grads from the report – If you can’t find job in academic field after PhD, try Brazil!
I’m sure India will be good option as well.
