About this course

This programme provides senior executives and managers with the opportunity to achieve the highest academic degree while remaining in full time employment. Equivalent to a PhD qualification, the DBA is more appropriate for those pursuing a professional career.

The Liverpool Business School DBA will enhance abilities to develop new knowledge but also to apply knowledge in a professional context, thereby making a real and tangible impact to individuals and organisations. The programme will also equip students with the necessary research skills to carry out rigorous research, while providing the flexibility to carry out individual research projects that impact on the organisation and industry in which you operate.

Entry Requirements

  • Candidates should be well qualified in their chosen field and possess a business related Master’s degree (e.g. MBA) or equivalent qualification supplemented with sufficient recent business and management experience appropriate to the research being undertaken.
  • The admission process requires an initial proposal for subsequent investigation.
  • An IELTS score of 6.5 is required for participants for whom English is a second language.
