Course Summary

The Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) is an innovative alternative to the traditional PhD. The DBA course is designed to enable professionals to use applied research and become influential leaders in business, gaining a recognised qualification.

Business leaders recognise the operational and strategic challenges they face, for example, new technologies, increased business outsourcing, greater political uncertainty and business volatility.

Such complexities require that organisations identify and respond more quickly to changing risk profiles, providing innovative solutions to complex problems.

The Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) course provides an opportunity for you to do so. You will study taught modules and, via applied research, you will make an impact upon your organisation by delivering unique solutions based upon accurate analysis of global challenges.

This is the ideal qualification to enhance your career projection, which allows you to learn in work and at work, combining full-time employment with studying for a flagship Doctorate of Business Administration.
