PhD

Aimed at developing analytical, research and educational abilities in candidates who already hold an MBA, MSc or other business-related master's degree, the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a capstone achievement opening the door to executive positions or tenured professorships at universities. DBA programs are available on a part-time or full time basis at universities and business schools in Switzerland. Hence, some working professionals will find they are able to continue working and pursue a DBA at the same time in Switzerland.

One of the key elements of the DBA program is the dissertation or thesis project. The independent research project helps DBA candidates at universities in Switzerland develop their professional knowledge through the research and analysis of pertinent theoretical or practical business concepts. Examples of some DBA research fields could include social impact management, international business, marketing, entrepreneurship, supply chain management, leadership or globalization. In addition to the research project, DBA students in Switzerland will also attend seminars and workshops, giving more opportunities to extend leadership, decision-making and management skills.

Doctor of Business Administration Degrees in Switzerland 2017/2018. The Doctoral Program at the American Graduate School of Business aims to incrementally develop students’ higher order business skills and competencies along with an enhanced emphasis on conducting and interpreting research. This program is differentiated from AGSB’s Masters in International Business (MIBA) degree which emphasizes professional business management with a global scope. While both the DBA and the MIBA continue to inculcate in students managerial training and competencies, the DBA further includes a higher emphasis on theoretical formulation and on conducting and interpreting research. In keeping with the latter objective, doctoral business students are typically exposed to a wider variety of readings involving journal and research articles, as opposed to predominantly textbook based material. Further, the DBA students are expected to perform at an incrementally higher level in regards to the analysis and synthesis of a wide range of business material. Level: Graduate Duration: 12 - 36 months Enrolment status: Full/Part time Intakes: January, April and September Scholarships: Available Payment plans: Upon request Internship: Available, required Dual degree: Available Our DBA students are business professionals looking to acquire additional qualifications as a researcher.

Their aspiration is to broaden their profile of capabilities, rather than just incrementally deepen their existing knowledge base... [-]

Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA)

SBS Swiss Business School
Campus Part time 30 - 72 months February 2018 Switzerland Zurich

The Doctor of Business Administration program attempts to bring theory and practice to bear on decision making in complex organizations in order to help these institutions adapt to change and lay the foundations for long term survival. [+]

Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) The mission of the institution is to educate individuals who will contribute to the management and leadership of global organizations. Welcome from the Academic Dean Many now hold to the proposition that the DBA is to the 21st century what the MBA was to the latter half of the 20th century. Without engaging in that debate it is certainly the case that work environments face challenges without historical precedent. Business and government leaders everywhere are confronted by novel situations for which past theories, practices and strategies do not seem to provide the answers. Change continues to accelerate and the impacts of globalisation, at once profound and subtle, affect all institutions and organisations. No longer can leaders be contented simply to apply knowledge, they must lead the generation of knowledge in their own organisations that informs practice and policy peculiar to their circumstances. In other words, business leaders today must be able to lead the conduct of work related research. This DBA is designed to equip candidates with this capability. The SBS International Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) offers an option for organisations and individuals looking to improve their business performance through the development of a superior capacity to investigate and resolve organisationally based, while designing and carrying out original research. It equips senior managers with the skills to apply current research methodology to issues of corporate concern and enhances candidates’ research and consultancy skills. We invite you to consider the many benefits the SBS DBA... [-]
