Andreas Meiszner

Since 2012, I have tutored, mentored and coached beyond 500 professional doctoral students (mid to seniors, aged 35 to 70) both with the University of Liverpool Management School’s Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) program (UK), and since 2016 also with DoctorateHub. This allowed me to understand how to tackle problems at scale, be it the tame, the complex, or the wicked. 500+ students also implies 500+ workplace-based problems which I had the chance to look at. And while working with such an array of problems allows for quite some learningit also has shown to me that very often it is quite exhaustive for such grown up and seasoned research novices. In response to this, we thus decided to set up the DoctorateHub, so to provide training, mentoring, and coaching services to all those that struggle to get their workplace-based issues identified, analysed, understood, written up in a thesis, and ultimately resolved.

In addition to this, I am also an active research fellow who has an interest in applied research, have more than a decade of global experience as a contract researcher in the areas of Innovation, ICT and the Internet, Education, Management, and Economics. I have a track record as Principal Investigator in the development and management of research, training and capacity building projects within Europe and across the globe; managing in-house teams and globally distributed external research, development and training teams, and have worked for a number of leading academic institutions, such as the United Nations University – Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT), who has been ranked as one of the global top 3 institutes in its domain next to Harvard, MIT, Stanford and the London School of Economics.

As for my educational background, I obtained my PhD in 2011 from The Open University (UK) for work carried out at the Institute of Educational Technologies and that is titled ‘The Emergence of Free / Open Courses - Lessons from the Open Source Movement’. I am also holding three higher education degrees in management from universities in France, Germany and The Netherlands, and with majors in ‘International Management’ and in ‘Human Resources and Organizational Management’. 

I am also one of the DoctorateHub’s Co-founders with a particular focus on strategic development and building up of the various DoctorateHub support services that we provide.

  • 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.
