*Similar programmes in Europe show that:

 

↑ 6% €

- industrial doctorates earn, on average, 6% more than traditional doctorates.

 

↑ rate of employment

- they have a higher rate of employment.

 

80% private companies

80% work in private companies, unlike traditional doctorates, where this percentage is below 50%.

 

↓brain drain

brain drain is very limited in the case of industrial doctorates.

 

↑ management positions

- there is an increased probability of being given management responsibilities.
