Course Detail

Introduction

Objectives

The DBA is designed for people who have achieved, or expect to achieve, senior organizational positions and who wish to develop their analytical and research skills and knowledge.

It is a professional doctorate, equivalent to a PhD but with a strong focus on applied research. Learn how to enhance professional practice by applying and developing theoretical frameworks and perspectives.

 

Methods of Assessment

As with all doctoral programmes the key assessment output is a thesis, and the two taught modules are focused on providing the students with the opportunity to explore their chosen specialised area of research and preparing them to complete the thesis. There is therefore relatively limited variation in assessment methods – all modules are largely assessed by classic ‘academic writing exercises’, such as research project and a pilot study report. Oral presentations are included as formative assessment method, and aim to support students in developing their ability to articulate and defend their research at viva voce.
