The DBA programme consists of 12 modules, which are studied in 12 quarters (= 1 module per term) or within at least three years.
The 12 modules are divided into the following four phases of study:
Launching. In the first phase of study, DBA students will identify their dissertation topic and be prepared to conduct doctoral level academic research.
Preparing. The second study phase includes the preparation of the dissertation proposal and all approvals to begin data collection.
Finalizing. In the third phase of study, DBA students will collect and analyze their data, present and discuss their results, and complete their dissertation.
Defending and Publishing. In the final phase of study, DBA students will defend and prepare the publication of their dissertations.
In all these phases, you will be closely accompanied and supported by your dissertation advisors.
