IMG_4877_alloAs a lecturer at the Department of Management, University of Pannonia I started my PhD studies in Derby University, UK at the Faculty of Business, Computing and Law in 2010 January.  My research theme is Quality Life-Quality Work: Gender Work-Life Management in Hungarian Tourism Sector.  The two universities have good relationship due to one of my supervisors, Professor Alan Clarke. The part-time PhD study is perfect example of blended-learning, which means the texts and resources of each module is uploaded on my personal UDo profile and every semester there is a research day where I do a report on my progression to the Derby supervisor, Dr. Christine Jones. In addition every January starts with the New Horizon Conference where PhD students give presentations about their researches. Derby University provides an excellent atmosphere to do a research and therefore I   would like to thank this opportunity for those who help and support me:  the dean of the Faculty of Economics, Dr. András Jancsik, the head of the Department of Management, Dr. Lajos Szabó, last but not at all least Professor Alan Clarke.
