DBA at Lagos Business School.
The Doctorate of Business Administration programme is a doctoral-level, practice-focused research programme designed to help develop an evidence-based approach to management and practice. It suits experienced professionals with managerial capabilities and leadership values, looking for quality doctoral management education that combines flexibility with a strong academic rigour.
We understand that the need for senior practitioners to stand out as thought leaders in their organisations and wider occupations has become necessary in the evolving business complexities. Hence, we have designed our programme to enhance the capabilities of business leaders to solve the complex problems facing us.
We designed our programme to accommodate the busy schedule of a busy working senior executive. The DBA courses are delivered in a blended fashion that combines the power of face-to-face sessions with the flexibility of online content. The classroom sessions are scheduled on a modular basis in which students are in school for a period of one week every two months for lectures, seminar, and other classroom activities. The first year of the programme will be dedicated exclusively to course work. The second-year will be dedicated to course work and research while the third year will focus on research work.
Our programme will help our participants develop the capabilities to conduct management research that is relevant to national development. They will also be able to create and apply knowledge to solve relevant management challenges facing local and global companies and institutions.
Participants are expected to bring in real life challenges faced within their organisations for robust discussions in class, and at the end of every course submit action plans on strategies to adopt.
