This Doctor of Business Administration program from International University of Monaco (IUM) has been created for managers and, more broadly, for upper level professional employees. 


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 Doctor of Business Administration program from International University of Monaco (IUM) 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.

The undertaken research can be oriented towards sustained theoretically-based investigation of the management field leading to novel reconsiderations of existing work, or towards a purely research-based, original analysis and consideration of data and phenomena to correspond with similar research existent in the academic milieu.

The DBA degree intended to allow you to embark on careers as applied researchers, consultants, and senior corporate roles.

Who Can Do a Dba and Why Should You?

Students are expected to have a minimum of five years professional experience prior to DBA study, and a post-graduate level diploma (e.g., Master, MBA).

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 DBA degree 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.
