What is a DBA?
The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a higher learning degree designed to develop business professionals who are skilled in researching practical business problems. The focus is very much on researching in a practical context, as opposed to the more abstract, theory-driven research development that is provided by a PhD degree.
DBA candidates at the Strathclyde Business School (SBS) will learn high level skills in conceptual and reflexive thinking, the analysis of complex situations, the use of information systems for inquiry, and the design, implementation and monitoring of research inquiries and interventions in their own organisational domains. Research projects undertaken during the course of this programme will be aimed at understanding and exploring the practicalities of organisational experience and managerial practices.
