Self-Paced DBA

Whether you seek a deeper understanding of your profession or simply a new personal challenge, our DBA gives you the platform to expand your knowledge and make a difference to international business practice.

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is designed to cultivate the leadership necessary to tackle the challenges of senior management on an international level. A doctoral degree with managerial relevance allows top managers to deepen their expertise, contribute to the knowledge of their profession, and prepare themselves for the complex analyses and decision-making required of senior management. The program emphasizes an understanding of management as a system; understood as it operates across organizations, sectors, and cultures.

Drawing on your contacts, resources and expertise gained in senior management, you will focus your research on solving a real and important problem within your profession. The results of your work will benefit the wider business community, raise your profile and take your career potential to new heights.

Our DBA is flexible, allowing you to earn a high-level business qualification without pausing your career. It is self paced, giving you up to six years to complete the requirements. And by combining in-person courses in our international locations with online e-learning, you have the freedom to study wherever your career and lifestyle take you.
