Introduction

Are you a senior manager, consultant or entrepreneur who wants to draw together both the theoretical and practical aspects of leadership and managerial experience? Designed to enable you to develop professional practice, theoretical understanding and reflexive capability, the DBA is a high-level, innovative qualification and an alternative route if you wish to research your professional practice at the doctorate level.

The DBA program is designed for working professionals who have the motivation to expand their knowledge/skills and get a doctorate degree without interrupting their work. It is a collaboration between Plymouth University and International Institute in Geneva. The first four modules will be taught over four weekends at International Institute in Geneva. The DBA degree is awarded by Plymouth University, one of the UK's most prominent and dynamic universities with an educational history dating back to 1862. International Institute in Geneva is an accredited academic institution specialising in business education and is ranked among the top ten business schools in Switzerland by Eduniversal. The program starts in October of each year.

Why DBA and DPA?

DBA and DPAs are part-time research-based programs in business and public administration with the aim to prepare business managers and future leaders. These degrees are academically rigorous and provide practical professional qualifications. They are designed to enable participants to synthesize and develop professional practice, theoretical understanding and reflexive capability.

Furthermore, participants will enhance their personal and professional development by fueling their research curiosity, learning the importance of critical thinking and decision making and preparing themselves to address the unique challenges and opportunities of today’s business and public policy environment.

Many of the students work full-time while pursuing the DBA or DPA. These degrees whilst being equivalent in status and challenge to a PhD, are more appropriate to advance professional practice.
