After having received your master's degree, you might consider continuing your academic studies by doing a doctoral program.
Please bear in mind that the scope of a doctorial thesis differs considerably from that of a master's thesis. The WU offers some information on its doctoral studies here.
The minimum duration of the doctoral program is six semesters. However, IIB students usually require eight semesters on average. This is basically due to the complexity resulting from the international scope of empirical research. Moreover, most doctoral aspirants work as research assistants at IIB.
