About

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) from the University of Chester is designed for high-performing professionals to stimulate organisational, national or international development and contribute to wider debates in their field.

Overview

Innovative research solutions are now required to tackle the challenging circumstances facing contemporary organisations. Our Doctor of Business Administration participants at the University of Chester positively engage with these challenges as active members of our research community.

Our aim is to develop leading practitioner-researchers who inspire strategic change and contribute to wider debates in our areas of expertise. You will join a growing researcher community with student satisfaction above national average (Higher Education Academy Postgraduate Research Experience Survey).

Job Prospects

Our doctoral graduates typically advance their careers into roles which require high levels of expert knowledge and independent expertise, such as consultancy, organisational development, self-employment, executive coaching, senior roles in academe, and strategic leadership positions in business.

Programme Structure

How you'll learn:

  • Our DBA doctoral participants engage with a combination of activities in our pioneering Researcher Development Hub and the wider University research community at our Queen’s Park Campus, in conjunction with high-level critical reflection, and sustained independent self-directed study.
  • Our researchers will engage in group workshops, seminars, an annual research conference, and any relevant professional body activities.
  • Whilst on programme, participants are typically expected to engage with their supervisory team on a monthly basis with individual activities customised in conjunction with your research supervisor and which may take place in person or via on-line live delivery.
