This question already has an answer here:
I am going to be taking a Ph.D. program in statistics, and I kind of want to have two people for my supervisor (for my Ph.D. research), but I don't know if this would be a good or bad idea. I have two questions:
- What are the pros and cons of having two supervisors for my PhD research?
- In case of having two supervisors, would I be expected to choose the one of the two professors who will act as my "main supervisor" (can both supervisors be my "main supervisor")?
I have never taken a Ph.D. program before, so any answers would be appreciated.
