The Durham DBA is an executive doctoral programme for motivated, high achievers who want to develop their research, analytical and critical thinking skills to the highest level. The Doctorate in Business Administration is structured around a research project driven by the individual, with a focus on practical application in the business environment.
As a research degree, the Durham DBA offers skills and capabilities to discriminate between managerial “wisdom” and the results of rigorous, and relevant research, and educates our students to engage in the second of these both through the research philosophy and ethics, and the research methodology workshops.
The four substantive taught modules in the programme offer insights into various aspects of organisations.
The programme is offered on a flexible part-time basis and takes from four to six years to complete.
Years 1 and 2 comprise five taught modules delivered at the School.
Years 3 to 6 comprise individual supervised research and study.
Throughout your studies you’ll develop your research, analytical, conceptual and critical thinking skills to the highest level. You’ll also gain a strategic focus that will enable you to contribute to your own professional practice and the wider subject area.
