After the Doctorate? Personal and Professional Outcomes of the Doctoral Learning Journey
Elsey, Barry
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v47 n3 p379-404 Nov 2007
This paper explores the post-graduation experiences of 94 doctoral graduates from the Division of Business at the University of South Australia. Data were gathered by means of an online questionnaire. The first part examines the extent to which the original goals and ambitions of the graduates were realised in successfully completing the doctoral learning journey. The second part investigates ways in which doctoral learning outcomes were applied after graduation. These two foci are of interest to university policy-makers, marketing and administrative staff and academics ultimately responsible for the delivery of programs and the management of the doctoral learning journey. (Contains 6 tables.)
