Abstract: This paper focuses on the selection of supervisor for Ph.D. candidate in general, i.e. on the issue of establishing and sustaining a supervisory relationship between the professor and the Ph.D. candidate. While this relationship is essential for the success of the Ph.D. program in general and completition of dissertation in particular, there are many evidences in the practice that such a relationship may contain imbalances in the power between the professor/supervisor and the Ph.D. candidate, which may be discussed in the terms of equity and inequality. Based upon the literature review, this paper briefly presents the (in)equitable relationship between supervisor and Ph.D. candidate, demonstrates the supervisor selection issue by using the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) method and discusses about the equity theory as the guiding aid in establishing and sustaining a supervisory relationship.
