Course Overview

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) at the Swansea Business School is an exciting opportunity for experienced managers to further their qualifications, combining research and practical reflective activities.

The DBA offers a relevant and manageable doctorate for managers who may feel the traditional PhD is not suitable for their career needs and ambitions. The element of reflection on professional practice distinguishes the professional doctorate from the award of a PhD.

The DBA is a professional doctorate which provides a structured programme of study through taught modules, closely integrated with an individual’s professional career development. It is widely recognised as the pinnacle of qualifications in the world of business and management. This DBA programme is designed to meet the needs of professionals working in Business Administration and Management related areas in the UK and international markets.

The programme aims to provide students with both a thorough grounding in the philosophy, principles and practice of business administration and management research and a critical understanding of key contemporary and global issues affecting all types and sectors of business. The term business is used in its widest sense as this degree may also be undertaken by those who work in social enterprises, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations.

The programme has two parts and is composed of taught modules and a doctoral-level work-based research project.
