Rocsana B. Manea Tonis, Natalia Manea


More and more universities are striving to provide competitive education programs to help graduates integrate into market areas. In this fight, universities need to have strong communication and support in the business world. The purpose of this article is to identify the main factors that would improve the quality of the doctoral program and facilitate the integration of students into the labour market in Romania. A questionnaire was applied to PhD students from the universities in Bucharest, and the data collected were interpreted.

The linear regression model developed shows that the library facilities, school infrastructure, access to Doctoral Theses, dialog between academia and students, doctoral coordinator and committee proficiency, staff attitude and multiple way of communication are some important factors that have positive influence over the quality of the higher education in the PhD program and the students’ integration on labour market in Romania.

The open questions of survey revealed new interesting suggestion for improving PhD programs in Romania.
