If you are a business professional looking to extend your expertise and progress your career to the next level, then this Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) course will help you embrace your past professional and workplace experience to develop a host of relevant research skills.

This Doctorate course provides opportunities for advanced study and reflection on practice across a range of professional fields including accountancy, business management, economics, human resource development, international management, organisational behaviour, and more.

A professional doctorate is, by its very nature, the embodiment of Work Integrated Learning (WIL), and is much more focused on professional practice than a traditional PhD. Throughout the coursework, and specifically in the dissertation, candidates will be encouraged to apply their existing professional knowledge and undertake new research to identify and explore a real-world problem in the field of business administration.
