Student Profiles

Paul Donovan – Ireland

"The material that I worked on during the DSocSci has affected me in ways I least expected it to.

When I was asked five years ago why I wanted to do the programme I replied that I wanted a doctorate. I could see that it would open doors for me and it has done that. Others view you differently when you’re “Dr”. It’s gone on to my business card effortlessly and I’m not in the least bit shy about using it. It does have its benefits when dealing with clients. Now that I’ve achieved the doctorate I believe that this award has complemented my business experience to offer my clients a more rounded package. It’s also helped my credibility with the academics with whom I deal on a daily basis."
