UWE Bristol's Doctorate in Business Administration is a focussed, carefully curated course that will enable you to meet the higher intellectual and professional practice demands of your role.

It's a challenging, game-changing opportunity that has the potential to transform your leadership vision, your individual performance and your organisation.

Designed for senior managers with significant experience and decision-making responsibilities, it will enable you to apply current business knowledge and original thinking to develop comprehensive research skills in your area of interest.

Over the course of the programme, we'll equip you with all the skills you'll need to conduct an independent research project with a demonstrable impact on your organisation.

With the support of a carefully-selected specialist supervisor, you'll develop a personalised learning plan that allows you to address the challenges facing your business whether that includes HRM, organisation development, marketing, digital transformation, supply chain, mergers and acquisitions, or leadership vision.

You'll be taught by experienced lecturers and widely published researchers who represent excellence in a broad variety of disciplines - from HR and finance, to organisational strategy and law. Teaching takes place in the technology-enhanced learning spaces of our world-class Bristol Business School, where you'll be able to engage with academics from across several disciplines. You'll also have opportunities to network with guest lecturers from amongst our partners, who include well-known names such as FMCG companies like Nestlé.
