    Can I go for PhD while working with a private firm? Any provision for salary and leaves here?

    I am MBA in Agri Management and got placed in a private firm through campus placement. Now I want to go for further studies and want to do P.HD. Can I get any support in terms of salary and leaves from the private firm or not? Need your guidance.

    Re: Can I go for PhD while working with a private firm? Any provision for salary and leaves here?

    Dear friend,

    Someone gave me a really great, simple piece of advice about getting my graduate work done while working full-time:

    If nothing else, think about your project for at least 1/2 hour a day.

    That's it; that's all. But on those really bad days, when you just can't tackle the stack of reading or do any writing, you can definitely sit and think about it. You can think about it over dinner, or you think about it on your commute, or you can think about it at the computer. But a half hour isn't much.

    The difference I've experienced since I started practicing this is pretty big - it means that even if I'm not doing a lot of work on any given day, or can't, or just don't feel like it, I still am able to stay engaged and feel in touch with the work - instead of going a week or two without doing or thinking about it at all (other than 'I should be working' which doesn't count), and then feeling it recede into the distant past.

    And just the fact that you spend some time thinking about it every day means that you can sort of stay more excited about the work. "Thinking about it" is wide-ranging enough - it doesn't translate to "write seven pages" or "make bibliogpraphic entries," it's enough to just idly turn things over in your mind and think about the topic more generally. Oddly, this leads to an increased motivation to actually get to the books, keyboard, or whatever.
    Thanks,

    Yes you can pursue your phd while working in the private firm.Companies most of the times support and sponsor such studies.So go on and ask you seniors about it.Plus you'll get a salary hike after completing your phd.Phd doesnt require regular attending of classes and all so you can do your research while working,just spare few hours daily for your research.All the best

    Hi

    yes you can do your PHD while working in a privet firm.

    for phd some companys offer some amount of sponsership.

    So you have to ask your seniours about it.

    and the about your leaves you can talk to yiur seniours or their is no

    compulstion to join the class regularly.

    so both problems are solved now.

    so best luck.

    Dear, asked yes, it is possible you can go for your phd programme even in working in a private firm. Thare are two ways of doing phd part-time and full-time so decide by your self to which one is to prefer. Actually phd is research on a particular subject for which two to three hours is sufficient daily for an average student.

    Hi friend,
    Yes you can do P.hd while working full time. Most of the companies support higher studies. It adds value to their company. As after completing your P.hd your thinking capacity is more. You will be more professional.
    It will give you promotion plus salary hike. Thing here is you have to spend 3 to 4 hours a day in research. You have to master how to manage time effectively.

    All the best !!

    Hi Friend,
    Most of the companies sponsor higher studies in your skilled area. Please check the higher education policy with your company HR.
    If company is happy to sponsor your higher studies then they will take care of the course fees but they will not pay you monthly salary in that period.
    If you are going on sponsorship they will expect that you should not leave the company in couple of years otherwise you need to payback the course fees.

    In between as you mentioned that you would like to do Phd where you do not need to attend university regularly that case try for working in flexible hours. Please speak to your manager to check the feasibility of flexible hours so that you can keep balance in both work and study.

    Regards

    Can I go for PhD while working with a private firm? Any provision for salary and leaves here?

    Someone gave ME a very nice, straightforward piece of recommendation concerning obtaining my graduate work done whereas operating full-time:

    If nothing else, place confidence in your project for a minimum of 1/2 hour daily.

    That is it; that is all. however on those very dangerous days, once you simply cannot tackle the stack of reading or do any writing, you'll be able to undoubtedly sit and place confidence in it. you'll be able to place confidence in it over dinner, otherwise you place confidence in it on your commute, otherwise you will place confidence in it at the pc.

    The distinction I've older since I started active this can be pretty huge - it means albeit i am not doing plenty of labor on any given day, or can't, or simply do not feel love it, I still am ready to keep engaged and feel in-tuned with the work - rather than going every week or 2 while not doing or puzzling over it in the least (other than 'I ought to be working' which does not count), and so feeling it recede into the distant past.

    And simply the very fact that you just pay a while it daily means you'll be able to kind of keep additional excited about the work. "Thinking concerning it" is wide-ranging enough - it does not translate to "write seven pages" or "make bibliographic entries," it's enough to simply lazily flip things over in your mind and place confidence in the subject additional usually. Oddly, this ends up in associate redoubled motivation to really get to the books, keyboard, or no matter.

    Yes you'll be able to pursue your Ph.D. whereas operating within the non-public firm.Companies most of the days support and sponsor such studies.So press on and raise you seniors concerning it.Plus you will get a pay hike when finishing your Ph.D..Phd doesnt need regular attending of categories and every one therefore you'll be able to do your analysis whereas operating,just spare few hours daily for your analysis.

    Most of the businesses sponsor higher studies in your hot space. Please check the upper education policy together with your company unit of time.
    If company is happy to sponsor your higher studies then they'll pay attention of the course fees however they'll not pay you monthly pay in this amount.
    If you're happening support they'll expect that you just mustn't leave the corporate in number of years otherwise you wish to payback the course fees.

    In between as you mentioned that you just would love to try to to Ph.D. wherever you are doing not ought to attend university often that case contend operating in versatile hours. Please speak to your manager to envision the feasibleness of versatile hours so you'll be able to keep balance in each work and study.
