Description

OBJECTIVES

The Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) aims for graduates to discern the emergent orientations to be applied within a company: This doctorate will assist you in acquiring and mastering the methodology of research to apply to your job.

The Doctorate of Business Administration offered by Grenoble Ecole de Management is a research-based doctoral degree that offers participants the opportunity to obtain the highest level, unique, and issue-driven qualifications in business.

The Grenoble DBA is particularly focused on the management of technology, organizational change, and innovation. However, the program may also cover more traditional research topics in fields such as management, finance, marketing, and organizational behavior.

2 STAGES:

STAGE I – TRAINING IN DOCTORAL RESEARCH IN MANAGEMENT SCIENCES:

Philosophy, Methods and Tools (18 to 24 months)
DBA students start by learning methods and techniques for research design, data collection, and data analysis in order to conduct, analyze, author, and publish research that meets doctoral standards. Students complete a series of four to six research training workshops that are held in Grenoble and partner countries.
Between workshops, students prepare a detailed research thesis proposal, complete a pilot study, and perform individual research and research fieldwork under the direction of doctoral supervisors. In order to proceed to Stage II, students are required to produce three pieces of written work:
• An extended research proposal (1,500 to 4,000 words);
• A comprehensive publishable literature review (5,000 to 20,000 words); and
• A preliminary thesis (15,000 to 30,000 words).

STAGE II - THESIS (24 TO 30 MONTHS OF PART-TIME STUDY)

The DBA research and thesis portion of the program consists primarily of individual research under the supervision of a qualified professor who has an international reputation in technology management, business innovation, and organizational change management and provides a broad range of subject-area expertise.
The DBA thesis should exhibit substantial evidence of original scholarship that meets publishing standards and provides useful managerial recommendations.
DBA candidates are required to show their ability to conduct original investigations; test, apply, and examine their own and others’ ideas; and understand the relationship between their themes and wider fields of knowledge. Candidates may be required to identify current issues and apply relevant theories for problem solving.
