Programme Aims

The aim of the Swansea DBA as a professional doctorate is to provide a structured programme for doctoral research, leading to the demonstration of an original contribution to knowledge in the academic subject and the field of practice through original research or the original application of existing knowledge and understanding.

Assessment

Doctor of Business Administration students are assessed in two ways, through the modules and the preparation of a doctoral thesis.

Each of the six modules requires the production of a 6,000-word paper which is then assessed by the module team. Students are supported in this process through the three-day workshops, their supervisory team, and formative student presentation of their proposed paper one month prior to hand-in.

The doctoral thesis is prepared with the support of the supervisory team. The supervised thesis is considered a ‘Professional Doctorate’ thesis under Swansea University Post Graduate Research regulations and as such has a maximum word count of 80,000 words.

The thesis is presented for assessment through a viva voce examination governed by current Swansea University postgraduate research regulations.
