    Doctoral curricula tend to be very university and department specific. Despite of this, we are working towards a framework within which doctoral curricula can be harmonized between two very different countries and among four different universities, in a subfield of Information Systems, eBusiness. In this paper, the educational systems in both countries are presented and compared. The planning carried out so far and its results are presented in terms of some key elements in course work: studies in the subject matter and research methods. The curriculum itself is a topic for future work.
