What is the DBA in Management and Technology?
The DBA in Management and Technology is an executive doctoral program for senior professionals with intellectual curiosity who want to make a difference.
The DBA in Management and Technology is an executive doctoral program for professionals with extensive experience. The program is designed for those who want to make a difference in their organizations and broader communities by harnessing the potential of disruptive technologies.
Our aim is to develop a new kind of “scholarly practitioner” who can apply cutting-edge research to current managerial problems that require a high level of understanding of new technologies and their potential.
In addition, this executive doctoral degree will provide high caliber professionals with outstanding networking opportunities and a chance to take part in a community of learning and innovation that contributes to the development of industrial, best practices, to shaping welfare-enhancing public policy, and to channeling technological disruption into a force for good in society.
The program is taught in collaboration between Comillas ICADE (Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and Faculty of Law) and Comillas ICAI (School of Engineering). This strategic alliance, together with the humanistic tradition of the Comillas Pontifical University, is key to comprehensively addressing challenges and new business opportunities offered by technology.
The DBA is a three-year program, combining short courses during the first one-and-a-half years, with innovation and research in the second half, leading to the successful defence of a dissertation. Graduates obtain the Comillas Pontifical University degree of Doctor of Business Administration.
Collaboration with MIT Sloan
MIT Sloan School of Management and Universidad Pontificia Comillas have signed a Memorandum of Agreement to collaborate in the area of graduate education. Our DBA in Management and Technology students will take a course at MIT Sloan on the topic of Disruptive Business Models. We are convinced that this type of activity will herald the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship between our institutions.
