    Dear Sirs,

    I am enthusiastic in making a PhD in Risk Management for advancing a professional career in consultation and training in particular.

    So, could you please advice on a DBA program or a pathway that could satisfy my goal about getting the best available professional doctorate in risk management?

    Thank you very much for your attention

    Hi there,

    thank you for your question. We cannot provide individual recommendations but we suggest a general approach to identify quality DBA programs. Please check our article on How to identify quality DBA programs?.

    So far for the general approach. Next, in terms of risk management, the key will be the professors. You need a supervisor of your dissertation, who is publishing in risk management. Consequently, you need to find a DBA program at an institution with at least one professor, who publishes in risk management.

    Spontaneously, I have to think of m yown professor Luis Gomez-Mejia, who teaches at the W. P. Carey School of Business but also occasionally at IE Business School.

    But apart from him, identifying the professor-dba-combination will be your key to risk management. Clearly, this requires some investigation work on your side but eventually it will increase the chance of finding a satisfactory DBA program.

    Best wishes,
