Discover how to confidently and expertly lead organisations to success.
There’s never been a more crucial time to develop your management and leadership skillset.
Technological advancements and globalisation have forced organisations, regardless of size, to become internationally minded. This, in turn, has caused the roles of those in business administration to evolve.
Organisations need professionals with sophisticated research skills, who understand the needs of the industry and are able to both transfer and employ academic knowledge.
Our Global Doctorate in Business Administration* (DBA) is a high-level, professional business and management programme with international focus.
Fully online and part-time, this course is designed for private and public sector management professionals, keen to take their careers to new heights whilst continuing with their current work.
In your first year, you’ll experience rigorous taught modules, progressing onto the research phase of the programme. Your supervisory team will support though throughout, as you conduct applied, work-based research on topics of your choosing.
This is your opportunity to advance your professional knowledge and skillset, whilst helping to solve business challenges in your workplace, immediately and well into the future.
*Subject to final validation
Combining theory and application, the Global DBA will help improve your practice as a more efficient, agile leader.
This programme is 100% online, and as a part-time, flexible course, it fits around busy lifestyles. All of your course materials can be found on Moodle, our virtual learning environment – on demand and available no matter where you are. Study resources might include webinars, podcasts, discussion forums, videos, and more.
When it comes to monitoring your progress, you’ll be assessed through the coursework you submit online. It could include written assignments and a research and development project. You’ll also have the chance to receive formal and informal feedback throughout the course from your tutors and peers, and will be encouraged to self-reflect and evaluate your own performance too.

Earning a DBA shows the world you are not only an authority in your chosen field, but you’re driven to develop academically, professionally, and personally. Unlike a PhD, the DBA’s hands-on approach to applied business theory means that when you graduate, you’ll be in a position to act as the bridge between the business and academic world. All of this makes you an attractive prospect to employers.
