Why do a DBA ?

The DBA is three years program undertaken online on a part-time basis. However, some candidates may require a longer time due to changing professional demands. It is structured around five workshops per year, taught by internationally renowned consultants and researchers who offer the latest theories to help participants undertake their research projects.
