EU Business School’s highly competitive Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program is designed to be challenging, rigorous, and stimulating and to increase managerial, leadership, and academic competencies. The program develops students’ independent- and critical-thinking skills, which enables them to master a specific field within the business. Students hone their research and analytical skills by completing an original, expert-level research project.

The EU DBA program is built on an effective combination of courses, seminars, professional residencies, research papers, and a final dissertation. Working with faculty members who have extensive academic and practical experience, students gain a comprehensive understanding of critical advanced theories and the ability to immediately apply creative solutions to existing, long-term problems.


EU Business School’s DBA program has a research-based curriculum, which uses practical business cases and consists of applied research as opposed to fundamental research. The DBA can be completed in as little as two years or in up to five years. The program consists of two major parts: The pre-dissertation phase takes a minimum of one year. Its objective is to provide students with the theoretical and practical information of their primary and supporting fields of study. The second phase determines whether students have correctly absorbed the knowledge of the pre-dissertation phase and are able to apply this knowledge toward the resolution of a substantial problem.


EU’s high-caliber faculty is made up of full-time academics with doctoral degrees, as well as part-time instructors who are also current members of the international business community. Our faculty members have current or previous experience as entrepreneurs, consultants, and business leaders. This merge of the academic and professional worlds supports a unique and exceptional quality of learning, reinforcing the EU's pragmatic approach to education.
