Course summary

Overview

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programme aims to provide you with relevant and leading-edge management and leadership awareness. You'll learn to operate in a reflective, reflexive and constructive manner as a world-level thought-leader in your chosen domain of expertise.

Develop original solutions to real-world issues, further your professional skills and create novel, holistic and research-led solutions that bring lasting impact for your organisation.

This course is for senior professionals, researchers in commercial or public organisations, managers, entrepreneurs, consultants and anyone else who wants to build their forensic and investigative skills to deal with knowledge-based investigations, organisational innovation, change and ambiguity.

Unlike a PhD programme, the DBA is a peer-based experience and focuses on research that emerges from a field of practice to draw in academic knowledge, and also includes a 12-week Executive Company Project.

By taking this Doctor of Business Administration you will gain:

  • The ability to combine practitioner and academic knowledge. Working with our leading faculty, you will build reflective skills and develop intellectual rigour to tackle organisational challenges and develop new insights.
  • Access to our diverse areas of research including people, organisations and work, evidence-based law, local governance, applied economics, social value, enterprise and innovation, urban research and austerity, finance and banking.
  • A community of UK and international peers from a variety of sectors with whom you’ll be exchanging ideas and knowledge.
  • The experience of implementing your research project, and seeing your work recognised in your organisation, profession and academia. This is an opportunity to bring impactful solutions to policy, communities and organisations.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching is delivered through a mix of block sessions /formal lectures, informal seminars, tutorials, workshops, discussions, supervisory sessions and e-learning platforms. A number of modules use in-course situations to encourage deeper learning and develop on-the-job skills of future managers and entrepreneurs. Assessment is through a combination of individual assessments/presentations, logs, action learning sets and thesis preparation and defence.

Graduate careers

Enhance your existing qualifications and career prospects with a specialist focus on management in an international context. You will benefit from access to DMU’s established Careers and Employability Team, who offer employability sessions and workshops, with personalised support via a careers coach to advise you on your options and to help develop your plans.
