Course summary

Cranfield School Of Management’s Executive DBA is the highest-level business qualification available. This DBA programme enables senior managers to conduct valuable, doctoral-level research on a part-time basis, over four years, while remaining in employment.

This unique, research-based, practice-driven DBA programme provides a route to a doctoral level qualification, using the latest research tools and techniques to develop leading-edge thinking and analytical skills.

Aimed at senior practitioners, policy-makers and consultants seeking leadership positions in their organisations and professions, the Cranfield DBA is one of the few worldwide to hold an Association of MBA (AMBA) accreditation.

Cranfield School of Management is a member of the Executive DBA Council and Professor Emma Parry, Director of Doctoral Programmes serves as its President. One of Council’s main aims is to provide outstanding networking and educational opportunities for professionals who serve and participate in executive doctoral degree programs.

A part-time doctoral programme for experienced executives

The programme contains a minimum of eight residential weeks over four-years, which provide the structure and support to ensure that researchers continue to progress.

The first and second year are comprised of four individual five-day modules focusing on Research Methods, co-ordinated by, and delivered at, Cranfield School of Management. The research training and researcher development input is structured into weekly blocks enabling you to work with your Supervisor and other Faculty Members for a concentrated period.

The Cranfield DBA Experience

A world-class reputation for quality assurance, support, environment and resources

Our focus is on ensuring that your contribution to practice is not only of relevance to your organisation, but has the capacity to impact broader practice and/or policy within your field. To help you achieve this, the programme delivers on its world-class reputation for quality assurance, support, environment and resources.

What particularly distinguishes our Executive DBA is the level of individual attention given to each participant in the programme through a series of structured progress reviews and specialised tuition. Together, they provide participants with an enviable and possibly unique experience in the world of business education.
