Course summary

Transform your business: make an impact

The Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) programme is cohort-based, with groups of up to 10 candidates mentored throughout their research degree by an expert academic team.

The DBA is designed for practising managers with the experience and roles to facilitate impactful change within their organisations as a result of their research.

Whilst the programme contains some taught elements designed to enhance your research skills and capabilities, the final award of the Doctorate is based on a portfolio of original research, presented in a thesis.

Is the DBA right for me?

Professional doctorates are for practising managers with the experience and roles which will facilitate impactful change in their organisations as a result of their research. Professional doctorates contain significant taught elements, but the final award of the doctorate is based on a portfolio of work, presented in a thesis. In the Faculty of Business and Law (FBL), the professional doctorate is the DBA, which is a Doctorate in Business Administration. The DBA is located within the Centre for Business in Society, one of FBL’s dedicated research centres.

The DBA process

Your DBA journey will go through three important phases, each designed to add an additional layer to your final submission.

Phase one (12-24 months)

Creating the foundation for the DBA: establishing the research question, context and methodology.

Phase two (12-24 months)

Conducting the research: one or several practical focused projects.

Phase three (12-24 months)

Assembling the thesis: critical reflection on research findings, implementation and observation of 'change'.
