What are Expert Centers?
Expert Centers are like research departments at public institutes, they only differ marginally in the sense that they are not necessarily supported by PhD/DBA programs (although they are welcomed). The participants of Expert Centers are experts in their field and join forces to research selected topics and publish about it. The Expert Centers demonstrate their expertise in the development of non-degree trainings and thematized workshops. The experts within the Expert Centers can act as supervisor and coach to doctoral candidates, that linked their doctoral research to one of the research tracks designed by the Expert Center. The developed trainings and workshops eventually end up on SSMs e-learning platform for current and future students to use in their academic programs.

The goal of Expert Centers
The objective of Expert Centers is to bring together a team of experts on a set of related topics. Through synergetic meetings, the experts co-develop, promote and gain access to international research supported by doctoral candidates in their areas of interest and expertise.

Benefits of joining an Expert Center
Joining an Expert Center at SSM is possible in two roles: as a doctoral student or as an expert in the relevant field.
As a doctoral candidate, finding a good research topic you can devote the next few years to is hard. You want to have a strong connection with the subject, but you also want the outcomes to have meaning to the (academic) community. Then, after picking the topic, you want to be guided by experienced and seasoned supervisors. Besides following the ‘regular’ PhD or DBA route – where we train you to become an expert in research via coursework on Qualitative and Quantitative Methods – you want to receive relevant and professional courses that allows you to become a though leader in your community. By choosing a research track from one of our Expert Centers you can be rest assured that the relevance of the study is extremely high; your supervisor(s) are hand-picked from the top of the field, and the taught courses are pushing the boundaries of the topic itself. Some Expert Centers offer partial scholarships when you pick a subject from the list, so joining an expert center can be financially attractive as well.
As an expert in the relevant field, joining SSMs Expert Centers allows you to contribute to the existing body of knowledge, get in touch with the new generation doctors, professors, entrepreneurs and managers. It will allow you to share your experience with likeminded individuals through training, workshops and conferences. SSM promotes the Expert Center
