The Business Administration programme from University of Nicosia is ideal for candidates who wish to pursue a career in academia whereas the DBA is more appropriate for those who, after working for a few years, would like to advance their careers in industry by earning an advanced research degree.
PhD students need to take one course (Research Philosophy, Methodology and Methods) which aims to prepare PhD candidates for designing their study. The course lasts 4 days and it is offered in the first year of studies. For the DBA students are required to take four courses (Personal and Organizational Reflections; Literature Review; Research Philosophy, Methodology and Methods; Analysis of Information). Students need to be physically present for the Research Philosophy, Methodology and Methods course and normally are expected to be present for the other three DBA courses (even though there is flexibility in this and it can be discussed at the time the courses are offered). Thesis length is similar for both degrees (80.000 words) but the difference is that for the DBA assessed work from courses may be included in the final word count.
Upon successful completion of this program, the graduates should be able to:
- Perform comprehensive literature reviews of complex topics in business and related fields
- Analyse critically research findings and interpret them in relation to existing literature
- Design research programs
- Select and apply suitable methods for research programs
- Analyse data and critically evaluate research findings
- Write for publication in academic journals, books and other research outlets
