Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA)

The DBA degree offered by Unicaf University prepares students for a high-level, professional career in business. The DBA is a doctorate programme, equal to a PhD, designed for students who wish to pursue a professional career, instead of research or academic work. The DBA is offered online. It is a professional doctorate degree with an international scope and reputation, designed to enhance executive and professional practice through the application of sound theory and rigorous research into real and complex issues, which are present in business and in management. Through the DBA programme graduates develop the necessary advanced skills and knowledge to lead organisations successfully and effectively. They also have the opportunity to refine their professional skills and focus on the core principles of business: leadership, research, strategy, technology, statistical thinking, and business ethics.

The UNICAF University DBA will enable you to:

  • Develop a sound understanding of the relevant conceptual and theoretical underpinnings of your chosen area of research into business and management
  • Have a detailed understanding of applicable techniques for research and advanced academic and management enquiry
  • Create and interpret knowledge through original research. Enhance both your performance as a reflective practitioner and your professional practice
