The DBA is an exciting and innovative programme designed to provide practising managers with the advanced research and analytical skills necessary for progressing their careers to a senior level.
For high-flying younger professionals on a fast-track to an illustrious career, we have designed the Full-Time DBA programme. Compared to a PhD, the NUBS FT DBA offers the benefit of a taught element - our candidates receive comprehensive training in research methods and are guided throughout the three-year process by a supervisory team of academics. They also enjoy the benefits of all the research training resources and facilities available to our academic staff and are treated as full members of the University's research community.
The FT DBA is a demanding programme for highly-accomplished individuals at the early stages of their careers who wish to make rapid progress both in academic and professional terms. It is a truly international programme attracting students of diverse nationalities and cultures. This is reflected in our candidates' research interests: many choose to study issues of immediate relevance to their national economies with the aim of adapting and transferring international best practice to their country of origin. We make every effort to support and nourish the international and multicultural dimensions of the programme.
Students who successfully complete the programme will have done the following:
* Acquired the expertise in research design and methods necessary to be able to undertake a doctoral-level research project
* Acquired a 'state of the art' understanding of theory and practice in their area of research
* Demonstrated a capacity to conduct original investigations and to test and/or apply and/or examine ideas, whether their own or others
* Designed and carried out a major research project of relevance to management practice
* Understood and reflected upon the relationship between their own research theme and associated literature and the wider corpus of knowledge
* Achieved a greater level of effectiveness as a professional practitioner in their area of study
* Be better able to evaluate and commission, as well as conduct research, to further enhance this capacity
The part-time DBA programme has a distinctive international flavour and is run and awarded jointly by Newcastle University Business School and Grenoble Ecole de Management, one of Frances top business schools. It is tailored to accommodate the requirements of working professionals. During the first two years of the part-time programme, a series of research workshops is held, each up to five days in duration. Two of these workshops are held in Newcastle and two in Grenoble, France. The workshops focus on research methodology and the skills necessary for completing a DBA (eg writing a literature review). Thematic lectures relating to students research topics are also delivered.
