Are there many ways to use a phd outside of academia?

Hello Suban, I'm considering a phd in the near future (in development, conflict studies) and I'm wondering about it's value in industry work/outside of academia.

Hey walaal. I think there's most certainly value for a PhD in industry work, especially as it relates to development and conflict studies. Opportunities have been sent my way to work as a researcher or with NGOs as a consultant to live in Somalia (or nearby) to support development and research. I think it's not necessary, as I know many who work in industry without it, but if it's something you want to pursue, I'm sure it will add value.
