About

The DBA in Business Transformation, Sustainable Business and Entrepreneurship from Business School Lausanne combines the wide spectrum and in-depth understanding of doctoral studies, with the realism and focus of field action.

Overview

The Business School Lausanne's DBA program in Business Transformation, Sustainable Business and Entrepreneurship is intended for those with previous managerial and leadership experience who wish to make a significant contribution to the enhancement of professional practice in the field of management. The process which will lead to this transformation will be undertaken via the critical review and the systematic application of appropriate theories and research to professional practice.

The DBA thesis, based on the research that is carried out throughout the program, is the primary piece of work that will be assessed for the award of the actual Doctorate.

Course requirements:

  • DBA graduates are expected to produce a significant Doctoral-level transdisciplinary study output that advances research in business and management fields and is relevant to be put in to practice.
  • The DBA thesis, based on the research that is carried out throughout the program, is the primary piece of work that will be assessed for the award of the actual Doctorate.

A program designed for professionals across the globe

The duration of the program is from three to six years, depending on if it is undertaken as a full-time or a part-time academic undertaking for the student. The BSL DBA program is essentially a distance-learning program. All seminars of BSL’s Doctoral School held in Lausanne are optional, even though highly recommended. The students who will attend will both acquire invaluable insights via face-to-face interaction with instructors while also gaining mutually beneficial contact with fellow Doctoral students from across the globe.

Elements such as the research question, the subject, the candidates’ network, their chosen research methodology along with factors such as the candidates’ proficiency in English and writing capacity can all have an influence on the duration of the program. Furthermore, we understand that due to the vocational nature of their chosen studies, the evolving professional obligations of the candidate can also affect the length of time that is required to achieve the DBA, hence the availability of less restrictive timescales.
