The Phd School brings together the doctoral programmes running in the University in order to better coordinate the policies of recruitment, management and awarding of the degree.
It organizes interdisciplinary teaching open to all doctoral students, encourages collaboration with institutions and companies involved in research sectors and encourages the international mobility of doctoral students for study and research purposes.
The Director of the Doctoral School is appointed by the Rector within the framework of a trio proposed by the Doctoral Council and remains in office for three years.
Pietro Mazzola assumed the role of Director of the Phd School of IULM in April 2017.
The Director, in addition to representing the School in external relations and with other bodies of the University, plays a key role in promoting the quality of PhD courses and in supervising the procedures of establishment, accreditation and evaluation.
