Indeed, the researched problematic should resolve a managerial issue you have encountered. Your research will be based on sound scientific methods and make a contribution to managerial knowledge.

The Business Administration program offered by the International University of Monaco (IUM) intends for you to stay in business and enhance your career. Nonetheless, the IUM DBA could be followed up and expanded through a traditional PhD diploma at a university, whereby one of IUM’s habilitated professors might take the role of a supervisor.

Key features:

  • IUM offers the Doctorate in Business Administration in response to a high demand coming from experienced professionals wishing to take a step back from their ongoing professional activities to research a specific managerial situation they encounter at work.

  • The DBA is practitioner-oriented and designed to be of functional significance to the practice of management.
  • It allies applied research with professional practices and provides the opportunity to theoretically reflect on activities undertaken in a professional context.
