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... [-]
