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.
