Overview

Research DBA track will guide you to enter academic world with the objective of publishing your work in various academic journals and conferences.

It is a practical and research-based doctoral program in business and industry which is designed for mid-career executives who have already completed the MBA (or equivalent qualification) and are looking to further enhance their practical and theoretical knowledge in the field.

The dissertation track is requiring to students to deliver dissertation/monologue thesis at the end of their DBA program.

As far as supervision of thesis research is concerned it is to be noted that the DBA thesis supervisor generally looks at the scientific work being prepared by the student, supervises it, and is committed to ensuring that quality standards of the work are being met. The supervisor is a person with the requisite academic qualification and experience in the chosen field of the thesis research. 

The supervisor has expert knowledge of the field in which the student is carrying out his/her research. The Supervisor’s task is to guide the DBA student from commencement of the research through the oral presentation and defense of the completed research work (DBA viva).

Total duration for completing the DBA - Research Track programme from Swiss School Of Business and Management  is two (2) academic years or less which depends on student’s motivation to deliver the thesis.
