Singapore Management University’s Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a doctoral programme for scholars and senior management who aspire to pursue practice-driven research with the potential to create business impact. On top of research training, DBA candidates will examine the industrial applications of theory through coursework and develop pedagogical competencies through specialised workshops. The DBA programme will enable candidates to develop a portfolio of skills for influencing management practice, conducting applied and field research, and teaching competently.

Our DBA introduces two research foundation courses carefully designed for alignment to business practice while maintaining the rigour of a traditional PhD programme. Candidates will be trained in relevant forms of research design and methodologies that are needed to overcome complex business problems. A series of workshops is also built into the programme to impart skills for data analysis, academic writing, case writing and teaching.
