3 Things You Need To Know About The AIB DBA
As an internationally recognised doctoral qualification, the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is fast becoming a popular study option for professionals. Known to equip candidates with skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and decision-making, its research-based curriculum is of great relevance to today’s business environment. The DBA delves further into research than the MBA, allowing candidates to make a contribution towards professional practice or policy. If you’d like to learn more about the AIB DBA programme, see below for some of the key points of difference.

1. It contributes directly to professional practice

The AIB DBA programme is perfect for those seeking to study in their chosen field while making a difference to professional practice or policy. It differs from the PhD programme as the PhD primarily focuses on contributions to theoretical knowledge. The DBA on the other hand is designed for practicing business professionals who wish to make a significant leadership contribution to their organisation or the wider industries where in they exist. It is a great balance between those seeking a research study experience and those who are also looking for a practical, work-applied programme.

2. It is recognised on a global scale

When researching your study options, choosing a learning provider with a list of accreditations should be a top priority. Relevant accreditations ensure that no matter where you are in the world, your degree is recognised and respected around the world. It is an official endorsement that ensures the credibility and competence of the provider and the courses that they offer. The AIB DBA is accredited by a number of key bodies in Australia and around the world, including the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Fast-Track MBA call to action

3. It is an achievable, flexible programme

The AIB DBA can be completed in a minimum of three years or a maximum of six years. This is due to AIB’s unique learning model, which allows students to continue working while studying. With the support of a highly qualified doctoral team, each candidate has the best chance of completing the programme in the shortest time consistent with quality research.
