About this course

The Doctor of Business Administration is a professional doctorate consisting of a rigorous program of advanced study and research, designed specifically to meet the needs of management professionals on issues of contemporary professional management practice. It is designed to enable participants to pursue higher degree research within the context of their role in the workplace and to receive academic support and recognition.
