Self-Research Doctorate for Option #1 to #4

A research doctorate is what most of us think of when we hear the term “doctoral degree.” These are classic Doctorate programs which focus heavily on generating original research for publication in a peer-reviewed journal and prepare students for a future of research or instruction as a tenure-track university professor. Most people who pursue a research doctorate progress straight from their master’s degree into a Doctorate program. Research doctorate programs require students to create and defend a dissertation as part of their studies and tend to take about 1-2 years longer to earn than an equivalent professional doctorate, although this varies greatly by subject and program. Examples of this type of doctorate include:

Doctorates fall broadly into two types: Research Doctorates and Professional Doctorates. Both are terminal degrees, and both allow the earner to use the term “doctor” in reference to themselves. The difference between the two lies in the process required to earn them and their career applications.

6 Options To Choose Earning DBA & Ph.D. Degrees

Professional Dual Doctorate for Option #5 and #6

These career-oriented terminal degrees only for work experience minimum of 10 years, over than 35 years old. Professional doctorate focuses less on research and more on the application of existing knowledge within one’s field of expertise.

Most people who enter a professional doctorate program have practical experience in their field and opt to earn a professional doctorate in order to move into a top-tier leadership role. In a professional doctorate program, you’ll be training to solve real-world problems and become a high-level agent of change. As such, you won’t be expected to generate original research (i.e. a dissertation), but to find new applications for existing knowledge, often referred to as applied research.

DOCTORAL PROGRAMME

• DBA – DOCTORATE OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION PROGRAMME

• PHD PROGRAM

DBA – Doctor of Business Administration

The DBA degree is designed to provide business leaders, executives and professionals an opportunity to pursue the next step beyond their MBA or equivalent qualification.

It is equivalent in stature to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree, but distinct in that candidates pursue applied research rather than theoretical knowledge. The goal of the DBA is to design organisational interventions which help address real- world challenges, and then to evaluate, assess and test the effectiveness of those interventions, and to communicate the findings so that both the world of practice and the world of research can benefit. In this way, the DBA candidates generate new knowledge – the ultimate criterion for the award of a Doctoral degree.

Our DBA is designed to produce scholar-practitioners who can enhance their organisation’s performance through evidence-based practice. It is distinctive in that the goal is the design and creation of an intervention, and rigorous evaluation of the effectiveness of that intervention. The programme therefore addresses three core areas: developing a clear understanding of the nature of the problem(s) or challenges to be addressed; understanding the relevant bodies of knowledge across management, innovation and strategy that may inform an intervention; and designing a research and data strategy to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention.

In pursuing these goals, the DBA brings together our world leading faculty, a unique degree programme designed to impart critical skills at the highest level, and organisational leaders and entrepreneurs with the desire and ability to make change in their organisations.
