International Doctoral Conference

"New Challenges in Global Economy"

The International Doctoral Conference „New challenges in Global Economy“ was a success!

New challenges in Global Economy was not only the title and the focus of the international doctoral conference but also a principle, by which the conference was realized.

On Thursday 30th of August, students of our doctoral programs discussed online in real time (12 - 18 UTC - Coordinated Universal Time) from countries from all over the world, including the USA, South Africa, China, Ghana, Czech Republic, and many more.

The doctoral students shared their research, answered questions of participants and even had to challenge opposing ideas and remarks. Throughout the conference, we were witness to many proposals advocating the improvement and development of economics in the global world. The contributions with the most impact and benefit towards the topic were rewarded with the Best Paper Award certificate along with items that enhance online communication.
