DBA - Doctor of Business Administration
The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programme aims to provide you with relevant and leading-edge management and leadership awareness. You'll learn to operate in a reflective, reflexive and constructive manner as a world-level thought-leader in your chosen domain of expertise.
Develop original solutions to real-world issues, further your professional skills and create novel, holistic and research-led solutions that bring lasting impact for your organisation.
This course is for senior professionals, researchers in commercial or public organisations, managers, entrepreneurs, consultants and anyone else who wants to build their forensic and investigative skills to deal with knowledge-based investigations, organisational innovation, change and ambiguity.
In contrast to a PhD programme, the DBA is an action-research based experience focussing on research which emerges from a field of practice informed by academic knowledge.
