Course summary

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a professional doctoral degree designed to enhance business leadership and professional practice. It is run in collaboration with FHM Bielefeld in Germany.

The programme is designed to provide an opportunity for business professionals to work creatively by analysing and synthesising research literature, and their own research evidence, to understand their own professional contexts more critically and to find solutions to key challenges in their working environment. In doing so it is envisaged that our students will become (and ultimately lead) communities of practice for their profession. The degree is delivered as part of a University professional doctorate programme.

The Professional Doctorate award is distinct from the PhD award in the following respects:

  • There is a considerable weighting given to a taught component which comprises an integral and key part of the programme, and the assessment of the taught component contributes directly towards the final award.
  • The thesis produced by Professional Doctorate students will make an original contribution to knowledge within the relevant area or areas of professional practice.
  • The benefits of the DBA are both organisational and personal. Research-led insights are likely to impact greatly on practice; the professionals undertaking the DBA developing as a result.

The benefits to your organisation:

  • Access to vital ‘cutting edge’ thinking.
  • The ability to significantly enhance your organisation’s innovative capacity.
  • The opportunity to offer senior business professionals the chance for further career development.
