comment Is PhD in GIS useful in non-educational career path?
Currently at my job it seems that I can tick the boxes in terms of my qualifications, however it's the learning aspect which motivates me towards the PhD. Discovering 'shortcomings' of GIS in current professional consultancy could be an interesting subject to pursue. Please keep your answers and ideas coming!! Thanks, Mandy

comment Is PhD in GIS useful in non-educational career path?
First of all, thank you all for your answers. It is good to know that having a PhD in the GIS field would't be detrimental. It sounds from the answers that it has a potential. My educational background is in GIS - I have a MSc degree in GIS and have undergone a variety of related training courses. At the moment I work for an engineering consultancy in GIS, however having formerly been a long term student, I have always enjoyed study and therefore am 'hungry' for more education.
