DBA Doctorate

DBA Doctorate Doctor of Business Administration represents a high scientific achievement and also a personal milestone and an intelligent, sustainable investment for the future. DBA enhances students’ academic opportunities and prepares their business career in an internationally flexible environment.  Our DBA students are conducting managerial research with a practical research question (it can be a specific problem from their work environment) and at the same time, they bring benefits to their companies. Research is based on evidence not on hypotheses, as we can find in the Ph.D. study. This type of study is suitable for those who want to change the way their professional experience and specialization is developing. 

Benefits of the DBA study:

One of the biggest benefits of DBA is the ability to access data in companies. These data are often protected and sometimes cannot be used without the prior consent of the company. Ph.D. students, on the contrary, often need to build their database from scratch, for example through online surveys or gathering, coding, and processing publicly available data. The research project provides the opportunity to critically evaluate the knowledge, the practical example that students have gained so far in business or in employment. 

Motivation Factor of the Study:

DBA students are less focused on expanding existing theories. Instead, it is a great benefit for them to combine research with specific business issues. Their starting point may be, for example, a business issue by companies, and the DBA’s dissertation can create a model that explains and solves it.
