Course summary

Overview

The University of Bradford Executive Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is the pinnacle of management education.

The programme is as academically rigorous as a PhD, but is specifically designed for executives, professionals and senior managers who seek to combine the best of academic knowledge with the best of practitioner knowledge in order to push forward the boundaries of understanding contemporary and rapidly transforming business and management challenges.

The Executive DBA provides advanced research methods training through a suite of four specifically designed taught modules delivered by leading scholars to equip students to undertake independent empirical research on contemporary business/management challenges and to develop new knowledge and understandings.

Students will be supervised by leading research-active academics who regularly publish in international journals and present at prestigious conferences.

DBA students will have opportunities to present their research at the Annual Doctoral Conference at the Faculty of Management, Law and Social Sciences. They will also have the opportunity to give guest lectures on their research and/or managerial expertise as part of the International Guest Lecture Series. DBA students can also publish their research in academic and practitioner journals.

Learning and assessment

Teaching combines academic rigour with practicality and relevance to professionals, executives and managers.

The programme integrates applied and theoretical knowledge and, in particular, facilitates the development of new knowledge which is at the forefront of the discipline and organisational/management practice.

Each module builds on the learning achieved in previous modules, so learning is cumulative, and all modules relate to each other.

You will develop an understanding of the issues of translating research into practice - a fundamental aspect of a DBA. You will be expected to reflect on the key issues you are tackling and explore how such findings, if replicated in a bigger study, could be translated into practice.

Career prospects

The Executive Doctor of Business Administration is specifically designed for MBA (or equivalent) graduates who are looking for the next challenge in their careers.

Given that the DBA programme was first launched in 2001 at the School of Management, our DBA students will be joining our international alumni network of prominent business executives. Current and recent DBA students work for leading multinational companies such as Shell International, Siemens, Coca Cola, Volvo, Bayer, ING Group and Phillips International.
