The DBA is designed to improve business and managerial practice by developing the personal, intellectual and academic abilities of participants through a research-based project. It has a strong and committed focus on managerial and professional practice, and seeks to link the rigorous study of work-based problems and issues to personal and professional development. It thereby ensures the transfer of learning into organisational and managerial practice.
The Doctorate of Business Administration has the same academic standing as a PhD. It is similarly a research-based qualification; participants can therefore expect a challenging, stretching and demanding experience conducted in a stimulating atmosphere of intellectual and academic debate.
The DBA encourages participants to challenge currently assumed knowledge and understanding of management. We support individuals’ commitment to finding new, innovative and personal responses to their organisational and managerial roles.
