Course summary

The world of business and commerce demands highly competent professionals – individuals who are equipped with the ability to make key decisions and face strategic challenges head on. If you want to be able to support your judgements with evidence-based data and bring measurable change to your organisation, the Doctor of Business Administration course is ideal.

This course (equivalent to the PhD) is the highest qualification that you can achieve in higher education. It’s a natural choice if you’re a practising manager or senior professional practitioner who wants to pursue your academic, personal and career development beyond Masters Level through a rigorous and challenging programme of study and research.

The DBA is a broad and flexible research based programme incorporating six modules, a reflective practice portfolio and a substantial research thesis. The research training element of the DBA focuses on both philosophy and methods of advanced research. It places a particular emphasis on the participative and action-oriented processes relevant to applied doctoral study of this nature.

It’s a doctoral research degree that investigates real businesses and managerial issues via the critical review and systematic application of appropriate theories and research to professional practice. The DBA course differs from a more traditional PhD - it will give you an applied research perspective and you will be expected to contribute not only to the body of knowledge but also to management practice through your research.
