DBA course - how it differs with PhD?

DBA – Doctor of Business Administration, in contrast to a traditional academic PhD, is designed to help students apply research-based thinking to business ideas, whilst deepening and broadening their understanding of professional practice. However, the DBA degree outcomes are equivalent to a PhD including level of award & title and permits you to use the title of ‘Dr.’ upon satisfactory completion.

Lot of students prefer the DBA programme as alternative to the traditional PhD doctoral research degree that is mostly more theory-oriented and less applied to address pragmatic needs of organisations. Unlike, the PhD research programme, the DBA study also includes an intensive (normally, 1 year) taught phase that prepares students in considerable depth for the empirical research that they undertake – usually in the organisation where they are currently employed at a senior/executive level.

The programme addresses strategic issues in professional practice globally, and places a high priority on the beneficial transfer of knowledge to the workplace. There will be a balance of intellectual scholarly enquiry with an applied problem-focused approach of direct relevance to contemporary organisation. The programme, in fact, aims to apply theory and professional practice perspectives to differing situations and work-based practice so that students are able to demonstrate their capacity to have an impact on their professional performance.

The programme also help students to develop their skills in thought leadership for organisational change and development, thereby build their capacity to address complex business problems of strategic significance through the creative and innovative application of learning.

As the name suggests, this research degree is based on Business & enterprise or business management subject.

To be considered, potential applicants should normally have a master’s degree preferably in business management with good grades. Candidates will be expected to have some work experience at managerial level. 

 

General guidelines to submitting applications for DBA Programme

At the application stage, provide some standard information about yourself and your past academic attainments, strengths and performances. Include a detailed CV with supporting evidences of any work experience & other activities and training you have undertaken. Make sure that you provide only true information and you can support this with documents.

You will require at least two references – it is advisable to collect them on organisation’s letterhead with referees’ signatures on it as most of the universities will ask for these at the application stage rather than writing to referees at later stage.
