Welcome to KATAJA's home page

KATAJA organizes research courses and tutorials for Doctoral students in business studies. KATAJA’s teaching program consists of subject courses, specialized courses, and courses in research skills. Subject courses deal with central theories of key research areas in business (accounting, finance, international business, logistics and supply chain management, management and organization, marketing). Specialty courses focus on topical themes within each research area. Training in research skills consists of courses in research methods and philosophy of science.

KATAJA courses are open for all Doctoral students affiliated with business schools in Finland. Students from fields other than business are admitted if there is room in the course.

In short, KATAJA

  • Offers high quality Doctoral courses that support student and teacher networking, both nationally and internationally. KATAJA also collaborates with EIASM in organizing EDEN courses.
  • Supports external mentoring and advising through tutorials/workshops organized by KATAJA Graduate Schools.
