The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) has been expertly designed to turn senior executives into scholar-practitioners. Studying at the internationally-renowned Warwick Business School, ranked 5th in REF 2014, you will pursue applied research in Business and Management.
Research for the Doctor of Business Administration is based on specific challenges facing individuals within their organisations, for which they will design and create an intervention, with the guidance of an experienced supervisor from the WBS faculty.
The DBA is made up of nine 3 day workshops, and two 1.5 day workshops at The Shard, teaching you design and research methods, academic theory, and reviewing relevant literature on key business research themes. You will be required to attend review panels in order to progress in your studies.
The DBA will culminate in a portfolio of work, showing how you have analysed, researched and designed a solution and implementation plan for your business challenge.
