I passed my viva many years ago, in 1993; however, this does not mean that I have forgotten how it was. I do recall it as it was just yesterday … After my viva, I was part of many Viva exams, of my students at bachelor, masters and PhD level as well as examination & viva committee member of many other students’ theses.

I started my research path as a young researcher at the University of Technology Vienna (Austria), where I obtained my PhD from and at University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). After finishing my PhD, I was working as a Researcher - free-lancer, when I was involved in several national and international interdisciplinary research projects working with research groups from different international universities and research institutions. My research career continued at the Austrian Academy of Science.

In 2003, I was appointed at University of Maribor, Slovenia as an Assistant Professor in the field of Quality Management and Environmental Protection Management, teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In 2006, I was elected to Associate Professor and in 2014 to Full Professor.

From 2014 to 2021, I was engaged with the University of Wollongong in Dubai, Faculty of Business as an active researcher, with strong engagement in the development and support of the UOWD research platform, the Higher Degree by Research (PhD/DBA) program.

During all my university career time I was engaged in research and/or teaching which is evidenced in my publication record, which contains over 350 items, including journal publications, conference participations, teaching activities and other research and teaching related activities.

I hope I will be able to pass some of my experience to you and help you progressing faster in your PhD journey.

  • How it works

    Weekly group sessions are hosted by mentors, coaches, and club moderators. There are sessions where attendance is free and sessions where you must have a premium user account. The latter are identified with an icon.

  • How do free group sessions work?

    Free group sessions are typically held in a club setting. Attendance is free, but registration is required to receive the session link. You may need to join the club before you can join in the specific sessions.

  • How do paid group sessions work?

    There will be times in your journey when you will need to work in smaller groups to accomplish a specific goal or milestone, such as submitting a paper to a conference or journal. Our coaches will gladly assist you in this undertaking. You can either upgrade your account to one of the doctoral journeys or use Brain Coins for on-demand support to join paid group sessions.

  • How do I find if a Professor is available?

    Within the community, our doctoral supervisors and Professors are referred to as 'Mentors'.

    On Saturdays, one of our mentors hosts a free, open-door session with no pre-determined agenda. The event is free to attend, but registration is required. Search and join the 'Professor is in' session from the list.

    In addition, our mentors attend the weekly club sessions. The participant list shows which mentor will be there for that session.

Ahmed I.

Thesis stage: PostDoc & Continued Training

For the more than 15 years (with the last 10 being in consultancy), I had been looking for ways to contribute to organizations that are interested in growth and broad-based development. I graduated from the DBA programme last year (2019), the course has accelerated my progress in understanding of organizations and now the doctoratehub is assisting me in sharpening these skills towards my interesting journey...I thank the providers of knowledge in the doctotratehub in providing this platform.

Thesis stage: PostDoc & Continued Training

The fact that you are readily available and providing the needed support is what I consider invaluable. So many lessons learned. It helps students because they no longer feel isolated. Keep up the good work.
