The Doctorate of Business Administration program from UBIS can cover traditional research topics in fields such as management, finance, marketing, organizational behavior, as well as non-traditional topics depending on students’ needs. Virtually all topics are accepted as long as the research is connected to management.


This Doctorate of Business Administration from UBIS is a 60 credit program in which 20 credits are based on relevant business topics, 25 credits are based on learning how to research, and 15 credits are based on executing your dissertation. Each module will contribute to the research for your Dissertation. Moreover, our very practical DBA is based on skills rather than merely research like other Doctorate programs. We will also help you perfect your public speaking abilities which we know is very important for any professional career.
