ESG for PhD Programs

For one year provides continuously in-depth ESG data to help complete an independent ESG course. Our customized self-study module helps to apply research, analyze data and recommend suggestions for complex ESG issues.

Key features:

  • Self-study mode for one full year
  • Industry focus or company focus based on PhD student’s choice
  • Exhaustive global ESG source documents provided
  • Specific data needed for PhD research collected from the ESG reports and made available
  • Summaries provided for the recent research done on ESG aspects
  • Affordable (and additional discounts available)

Data provided by ESGspectrum:

  • ESG reports for modules ordered
  • ESG news of recent 6 months for selected industries or set of companies
  • Analysis framework in excel with detailed documentation
  • Very specific ESG data requirements facilitated from the ESG reports
  • Recent ESG research summaries provided

Why needed:

  • Many PhD programs have not introduced an elective course for ESG
  • Libraries of these PhD programs do not have needed data sources
  • Many PhD students are working full time and studying for PhD part time; thus would have interest to customize the ESG project for their industry or their company’s topic of interest
  • Online PhD programs have gained enrollments where traditional libraries of the main campus are not accessible
  • Students’ employers’ ESG datasets may be confidential and thus they may need to work with the public domain datasets

How it works:

  • Either a PhD student can order one or more of the modules available based on the student’s one year ESG course project requirements
  • Or a PhD student can develop ESG course project outlines based on the datasets/reports/updates available at ESGspectrum and then order one or more of the modules available accordingly
  • A given PhD program pre-pays for 5 subscriptions for select PhD students
  • These PhD students select the available modules from ESGspectrum website
  • ESGspectrum dispatches the modules outputs to the Research Coordinator (or the library of the PhD program)
