Course Description

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a professional doctorate which provides a dynamic, research-based view of real world management issues.

This course is designed to generate new knowledge and understanding which will contribute to enhancing the policies and practices of modern management. It was created at Aberdeen Business School in conjunction with public and private sector leaders to encourage future leaders to enhance their professional careers and provide a route for them to gain academic recognition. A DBA is equivalent in terms of academic study to a PhD but more applied in nature.

Students on the course will have the opportunity to blend the latest academic thinking with business knowledge, skills and practice, to enable them to make a significant contribution to the enhancement of professional practice. The Aberdeen DBA has been specifically designed to:
•Build on management experience and skills, and past academic achievements as part of a carefully considered career plan;
•Provide maximum professional credibility and open doors into more senior management positions, consultancy or academia
•Enhance research and project management skills and increase understanding of research methods and techniques

It is studied full-time over 3-4 years and part-time or distance learning over 4-6 years.

The DBA programme will give you a foundation in research methods and offer you the opportunity to research in one or more of the following areas:
•Corporate Communications, Sales and Marketing
•Finance, Accounting and Corporate Governance
•Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour
•Entrepreneurship and the Performance of SMEs
•Leadership and Strategic Management
•Environmental and Operations Management
•Public Policy and Not-for-Profit Studies
•Tourism, Hospitality and Retail Management
•Technology, Innovation and e-Business.

In the first taught stage you will consolidate and extend your specialist knowledge and research competence and advance your research proposal.

In the second stage you will take your proposal forward to a full dissertation.
