The part-time 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. A dedicated supervisory team will support you throughout the programme.
The 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 France’s 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.
Normally an upper-second-class Honours degree in any subject, or international equivalent from a recognised institution. You should also have management experience of at least three years.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 or equivalent, with a minimum of 6.0 in all other sub skills.
