Our Executive Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) is an action-research based postgraduate programme, designed for senior professionals who want to drive transformational impact within their organisations, and become thought leaders in their professional area.
Starting in: September 2023
Duration: 4.5-7.5 years
At an individual level, the Executive DBA is a professional doctorate for business leaders, which means it provides access to the highest level of academic qualification.
At a company level, the programme equips senior managers with high-level analytical and problem-solving skills to drive transformational change within their organisations.
This is a hybrid part-time learning programme, combining online modules with on-campus residencies during the first two years, to allow working professionals to study while fulfilling their job obligations.
The Executive DBA expands the traditional support from an expert supervisor, with Doctoral Development Plan modules aimed strengthening the students' research capabilities, so they are able to deploy these skills during their thesis workplan and after graduation.
In our latest webinar, Executive DBA Director, Dr Paul Ellwood, provides detailed overview of the programme, with practical examples of how it has enhanced our alumni's research skills, allowing them to successfully implement transformational change within their organisations.
