If you are an experienced practitioner in business, industry and the professions, and are seeking to engage in a part-time research-orientated programme of postgraduate study leading to the award of a professional doctorate, then the DBA is for you. The DBA is regarded as being the same status as the more commonly known PhD and permits you to use the title of ‘Dr.’ upon satisfactory completion.
As a professional doctorate, the DBA consists of two Stages: Stage 1 a taught programme taken on a part-time basis over a two-year period, followed by Stage 2, a research programme which you should aim to complete in a further two-year period of part-time study although the maximum period of study is seven years.
Hold an approved Masters degree in business, management or in a subject that is relevant to the proposed research programme to be undertaken or hold an equivalent and relevant professional qualification
Have a significant level of relevant business, management or professional experience at a level appropriate to the proposed research programme
Demonstrate the potential to conduct research and write a thesis at doctoral level in a field which matches the areas of supervisory expertise available within the Business School
Provide two appropriate and satisfactory professional/academic references
