Designed for experienced business professionals with preceding post-graduate degrees, Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programs develop analytical, research and educational skills in candidates. DBA degrees from universities and business schools in Germany are particularly useful for candidates who wish to advance to a leadership or executive role within their company, or for those who desire to teach at university.
Undertaken as either a full-time or part-time commitment, DBA degree programs are challenging, rigorous and demand a high level of independent motivation. The outcome of three to four years of work on DBA research at a university in Germany will be a research-based dissertation, or thesis, which the candidate must then defend before a panel at the business school. DBA research is also sometimes undertaken at the candidate's current company with the aim to address specific, relevant topics and issues at that business. Other more theoretical DBA dissertation topics chosen by candidates at universities in Germany could refer to pertinent topics such as leadership, entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, globalization, social impact management, international finance or others.
