EU Business School’s DBA program has a research-based curriculum, which uses practical business cases and consists of applied research as opposed to fundamental research. The DBA can be completed in as little as two years or in up to five years. The program consists of two major parts: The pre-dissertation phase takes a minimum of one year. Its objective is to provide students with the theoretical and practical information of their primary and supporting fields of study. The second phase determines whether students have correctly absorbed the knowledge of the pre-dissertation phase and are able to apply this knowledge toward the resolution of a substantial problem.
Who is the DBA for?
The DBA is designed for:
- MBA or master’s degree holders and practitioners with five or more years of post-graduate work experience
