DBA – a Doctorate in Business Administration

Coventry University has a very successful Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) programme. DBAs are interesting: they are professional doctorates for practicing managers, which combine the intellectual rigour of a PhD with the candidates’ practice and experience. They help create practitioners who can change their organisations through research.

I have been involved in supporting the Coventry DBA for a while now, and earlier in the year I was invited to take over as Academic Director of the programme. It has been a very exciting experience, and I feel like I have learned a great deal with and from our candidates.

We put together a short video about what a DBA is, who it is for and what the benefits are. Our candidates take the spotlight here – they are truly the best ambassadors we could ask for. And they are a lot better on camera than me.

Not directed by Kathryn Bigelow, from an original script not written by Aaron Sorkin, I give you – the Coventry DBA.
