University of Warwick DBA Doctor of Business Administration

A new practitioner oriented doctoral degree for senior executives who want to research, implement and evaluate practical solutions to real organisational challenges

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) offers senior executives a professional doctorate or a Business and Management equivalent to a Doctor of Laws or Doctor of Medicine degree. That is, the highest level of professional and academic knowledge, coupled with the capacity to apply that knowledge to generating and evaluating novel solutions to important problems.

You will join the DBA with a specific business challenge requiring a practical solution: e.g. how to design a fast, adaptable organisation; how to employ behavioural science to improve strategic decision making; how to deploy talent management to build an army of entrepreneurs.

The DBA is structured to support you in developing your thinking, framing the challenge, and implementing, evaluating and communicating solutions which have a real, practical impact.
