Business Training for PhD Students in Social Science and related disciplines

Business Training for PhD Students in Social Science and related disciplines

A new training programme is being launched by the Scottish Graduate School of Social Sciences (SGSSS) around working with industry, business and the private sector. This training will be of interest to social sciences PhD students who are interested in working in partnership with industry throughout their academic career, or who are seeking employment in the industrial sector following graduation. The training works in three stages and students will be expected to attend all three events hosted in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen (travel and accommodation costs will be met by SGSSS).
