About

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) from the University of Strathclyde is a research degree designed to develop business professionals skilled in solving business problems.

Overview

Why study a DBA?

Within business, we're often faced with issues that test our problem-solving abilities. Academia can assist by providing methods, models and theories that can be used to unpack and analyse problems, and unlock solutions.

However, as organisations evolve and their activity becomes more complex, existing thinking may not be enough. Research into organisational phenomena is therefore ongoing and it's recognised that the contribution of practitioners to research is of vital importance. Too often though, the engagement of practice with academia is difficult to facilitate. One mechanism for achieving this engagement is the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA).

Your focus will be on applying academic theories, methods and models to solve problems of practice. Research projects undertaken during the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) from the University of Strathclyde aim to understand and explore how organisations work and how management is practised.

  • learn how to analyse complex situations and problems
  • acquire skills in conceptual and reflexive thinking
  • develop knowledge of the design, implementation and monitoring of research interventions

Programme Structure

The DBA provides two main opportunities:

  • Firstly, you develop knowledge in a specialist area. On completion, you can legitimately be considered an expert in your field, having studied it in-depth and conducted academically rigorous and practically relevant research which contributes to thinking in your chosen area.
  • Secondly, it supports you in carrying out an intervention within your organisation that will be hugely beneficial. At its core, a DBA is a knowledge exchange mechanism where you, supported by your supervisors and the wider research community within the University, acts as a change agent utilising proven models and methods to enact change. Therefore, there are multiple benefits for the student, their organisation and the wider academic community. 

Those holding a DBA are expert organisational practitioners and form a useful and necessary bridge between academia and practice, and between universities and organisations.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • As a research degree, the DBA is a much more involved and personal journey than previous programmes of study that you may have undertaken. We see the application’s process as the beginning of the relationship between the student and the University, and we promote a very ‘hands-on’ approach.
  • Therefore, the first step is to contact the Director of DBA programmes, Dr Steve Paton. This initial contact will allow us to explore your research interests and motivations and allow us to co-construct the best application possible. Further, it will provide an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have.
