“A cross-disciplinary tool box” – the value of a PhD in industry

“The real value of a PhD is the methodological tools. I grew in my ability to manage and manipulate ideas, frameworks and data from various disciplines. My problem solving skills are much, much more refined now.

Dr Matthew Turnour embarked upon a PhD in the QUT Business School after 15 years working in industry. Read our Q&A with Dr Turnour for his thoughts on the value of a PhD outside of academia, plus advice for doctoral graduates interested in pursuing careers in industry.
