The Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) program is provided in a synchronous cohort mode and follows a distinct calendar with several intakes per year (calendar and dates are available on request). The curriculum exposes the learner to cutting-edge business and management concepts and theories as they apply these to real-world business problems. The students enhance their analytical and critical thinking skills while contributing to the body of professional business knowledge through their own research project (i.e., the dissertation).

Our DBA balances the rigor of academic research, with the practical focus of working professionals. Dissertation topics are applied in nature, i.e., the student will focus their research on solving real issues confronting their organization. This program is designed for individuals with significant business experience who strive to increase their stature in the business community, either through the pursuit of executive leadership positions or applied business research employment. Certain academic career options are also open.
