ABOUT PROGRAMME | ABOUT

Programmer Objectives

The DBA is designed for people who have achieved, or expect to achieve, senior organisational
positions and who wish to develop their analytical and research skills and knowledge.

It is a professional doctorate, equivalent to a PhD but with a strong focus on applied research. Learn how to enhance professional practice by applying and developing theoretical frameworks and perspectives.

  • Develop the students’ proficiency in research, methodological and analytical skills.
  • Promote critical thinking and the ability to deal with complex, interdisciplinary facets of organisations.
  • Foster professional development skills.
  • Provide the highest level of management education.
  • In addition, the DBA students will be given knowledge to enhance their managerial practice and/or organisation.

Methods of Assessment

As with all doctoral programmers the key assessment output is a thesis, and the two taught modules are focused on providing the students with the opportunity to explore their chosen specialized area of research and preparing them to complete the thesis. There is therefore relatively limited variation in assessment methods – all modules are largely assessed by classic ‘academic writing exercises’, such as research project and a pilot study report. Oral presentations are included as formative assessment method, and aim to support students in developing their ability to articulate and defend their research at viva cove.
