BSB G-DBA Presentation
The BSB Global Doctorate in Business Administration (G-DBA) is a Doctoral level, research-based degree, internationally accredited by AACSB; EQUIS and AMBA, designed to contribute to the enhancement of multi- and inter-disciplinary management practice.
As a Doctoral degree programme – level 8 in the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), it also contributes to the production of new “mode-2” knowledge via the application and development of theoretical frameworks, methods, and techniques to real world settings.
The BSB G-DBA programme emphasizes the novel application of theory, rather than the creation of theory for its own sake. It adheres to European best practice (see, EDAMBA and EQUAL Guidelines) as well as the Doctoral programme standards of the world leading accreditation bodies (for example, EQUIS).
Most DBA programs are delivered part-time in 3 to 5 years, where the candidate is expected to complete a DBA thesis by research alongside full-time work and other commitments.
Complete writing up of the thesis & subsequent examination (viva voce), final corrections of the DBA Thesis and graduation in years 4 to 7 – additional study years are granted based on the annual progress reviews and in consultation with the supervisory teams.
Awarded by BSB, which enjoys the triple crown of international accreditations from AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA – only 120 business schools, out of more than 15,000 schools worldwide are distinguished as "triple accredited".
The programme will address major societal challenges via dedicated workshops, visits, and collaborative research training provision with world leading institutions in Japan – Tokyo Institute of Technology, and the USA – MIT Sloan School of Management.
The programme will leverage
the multi-campus architecture of BSB with its three campuses in Lyon, Dijon (including Beaune) and Paris. In the first year of study, you will have the opportunity to learn from and supervised by faculty on all three campuses.
