The Business Administration (DBA) at The University of Winchester is designed for experienced senior managers or business professionals, who already possess graduate qualifications, and who wish to develop their professional expertise to an advanced level while making a contribution to professional knowledge. 


Distinctive features of the The University of Winchester DBA include leading-edge teaching in Contemporary Research Methods with experts sharing the latest developments in social media, online methodologies and insight management. 

In addition, weekend teaching (Friday and Saturday) enables candidates to organise their studies more easily around work commitments. Winchester also provides a learning environment that stretches and challenges participants in the areas of values and ethics helping to develop responsible, creative and future-thinking thought leaders who make a significant impact in their field.

Learning outcomes

The first two years of the Business Administration (DBA) programme are delivered via taught modules which equip students with the knowledge and skills required for the research phase of the thesis. This taught period culminates in the implementation of a pilot project which enables candidates to develop the advanced research skills necessary for successful completion of the thesis. 

A particular feature of these stages is the use of action learning sets, facilitated by experienced research-active academics, where students share their learning and experience and provide each other with both support and challenge.
