The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a research-based management program that has been developed in accordance with the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), at AQF Level 10.
The DBA is particularly designed to enable high-achieving business managers, business owners and senior public servants (who typically possess a Master's degree), to develop their research skills and an innovative project by way of a research thesis.
The program provides solid training in business research methods to support the candidate's research. All aspects of the qualification can be related to the candidate's own workplace or industry. This provides opportunities for candidates to uncover new information or insights within their profession, to become an expert in their industry and make a significant contribution to their profession and the business sector.
