Course Summary

Course overview

Today’s global business environment is disruptive and dynamic, posing a range of leadership challenges for organisations. You develop the knowledge and skills required of business leaders within the complexities of the fourth industrial revolution, on this 100% online DBA course.

You learn through a combination of virtual live and pre-recorded sessions, allowing you to manage your studies at a time and location to suit you, and around your existing professional commitments.

You become a research-informed business leader who is able to apply best practice within your organisation and in your own managerial practices. The interaction between theory and practice provides you with a range of perspectives that add value in terms of business effectiveness, efficiency and capability. You reflect upon your own personal skills and engage in dialogue with global peers, to challenge your assumptions and transform your professional practice.

Working autonomously, but with support from your supervisory team, you build on previous knowledge and experience, gaining the confidence in academic research to undertake doctoral-level study.

You select a research topic aligned to your personal and professional objectives. Examples of previous research include studies of commitment to personal development, changes in public sector organisation, and the impact of organisational culture on efficiency.

How you learn

The DBA programme makes best use of technology towards affording learners a high quality meaningful learning experience that captures the realities of the dynamic and disruptive professional world, and to find solutions towards addressing some of the global and social challenges.

How you are assessed

The course adopts a range of formative and summative assessment methods to suit the demands and requirements of the contemporary business workplace. These include: research reports; literature reviews; case study analysis; individual presentations; self-diagnostic assessments; reflective analysis; research proposal and thesis.

Career opportunities

Typically graduates move into senior management and strategic leadership roles, internal consultant/project leadership roles or into external consultancy roles. DBA applicants are expected to be relatively senior business-based professionals at point of entry, so whilst the course will allow you to build on your existing work experience and skills, it will develop you as a research-informed business leader who is able to apply best practice within your organisational context and towards your own managerial practices.

Modules

The module requires you to draw creatively and critically upon your academic studies to develop and apply a specific piece of research to the organisational and/or professional discipline setting. In addition to incorporating the usual doctorate-level critical literature and methodological review, this module examines, evaluates and makes recommendations relating to current and possible future professional practice, demonstrating a contribution to the development of new knowledge within the appropriate professional field.
