Course content

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a professional doctoral degree designed to enhance business leadership and professional practice.

The programme is designed to provide an opportunity for business professionals to work creatively by analysing and synthesising research literature, and their own research evidence, to understand their own professional contexts more critically and to find solutions to key challenges in their working environment. In doing so it is envisaged that our students will become (and ultimately lead) communities of practice for their profession. The degree is delivered as part of a University professional doctorate programme.
