This Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a professional Doctorate degree designed to develop applied research for senior managers and leaders currently employed in an organisation that is committed to the continuing development of its employees.

This Doctorate degree blends theoretical learning with practical experience based on a business context to create a reflective practitioner. Rather than working towards a single output, the DBA is assessed by combining continuous evaluation with a major research project focusing on the candidate’s workplace.

It is equivalent to the PhD in terms of application, originality of work and contribution to business knowledge.
