The Doctorate in Business Leadership (DBL) is a professional doctorate in business leadership equivalent in standing to a PhD but with a clear focus on developing and improving professional business leadership practice. With its accent on developing research and enquiry skills to the highest level and a focus on application and reflection, coupled with flexibility in its block delivery, the DBL is the logical choice for experienced senior managers and management educators. The Newcastle Business School DBL recognises the student’s previous Masters level study and professional experience allowing completion of their doctoral qualification in two years (full-time) or three years (part-time).
We also have other doctoral opportunities, such as our Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) and our PhD. Details of both can be found by checking the Newcastle Business School website.
