Data access and collection
PhD in Management generally would need to build up their database from the scratch through one or more ways including online survey, postal questionnaire, field interview, visiting libraries, archives, reading journals and accessing publicly available data. This could be sometimes difficult, time consuming and accuracy could be compromised.
DBA (Doctor of Business Administration) students should have the advantages of having access to their own workplace and collecting accurate and unique data from familiar environment. This saves DBA students’ time and they are likely to get better outcomes.
PhD in Management graduates normally join as fulltime professors at business schools, do research, publish articles in academic journals, and write books.
DBA (Doctor of Business Administration) graduates usually continue their prior management position at existing workplace and look to grab higher roles. They have more options and flexibility in developing careers as analyst, consultants and senior level management & leadership positions in private, government and non-profit sectors. They can also choose career in administration or faculty in the education sector. DBA graduates may also opt to start career as entrepreneur or business owner.
