Programme Structure

The Doctor of Business Leadership commences with four coursework double-subjects covering leadership theories and practice, case analyses, leadership ethics and leadership issues, which provide a background of relevant leadership knowledge, research skills and insights required for the second stage of the course.

Following completion of the four coursework double-subjects, under supervision candidates evolve and critique (and, if necessary, re-think) a personal contingent leadership paradigm through documentation and analysis of personal leadership experiences, which is then submitted for external examination.
