Quality assurance in research education

At Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM)

The doctoral programmes at LUSEM are regularly evaluated and developed so that the quality of the programmes can be maintained. Peer review is a crucial part of this quality assurance process, and an external peer review committee is appointed for every evaluation.

The quality assurance process

The process starts with a self-evaluation made by the department responsible for the doctoral programme. This self-evaluation is summarized in a self-assessment report. The doctoral student union gets the opportunity to submit a special report to the peer-review committee. Based on the self-assessment report, the doctoral student union’s report, and interviews with representatives from the department management, supervisors and doctoral students, the task of the peer-review committee is to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the programme and make recommendations.

In LUSEM’s quality and development work, we focus a lot on accreditation, which is basically about ensuring the quality of our education, our research and how we interact with the surrounding society. The whole process calls for continuous development and internationalisation of our activities and helps us to maintain a strategic focus and to continue to develop in line with the demands and changes of the world around us.
