Fit your studies around your life. Not the other way round.
We believe flexibility is key to learning. That’s why our courses are perfect for those with career and family commitments.
We offer only administrative support for this programme. Additionally, research group meetings amongst different students are conducted for sharing knowledge and experience.
Glamis is currently conducting this programme for Mauritian students only.
To graduate successfully with the DBA , you will need to:
On acceptance on to the programme, you must first complete the three courses titled Introduction to Business Research 1, 2 and 3. These courses support students in understanding the research process:
On completion of the three Business Research courses, you will discuss your research interests with the Edinburgh Business School Senior Mentor and develop an outline of your proposed area of research. The Senior Mentor will then review your academic transcript and planned topic to decide which, if any, additional courses are required. You must successfully complete these additional subject courses. Each course requires around 200 hours of study.
Once the Course Stage is complete, you will be allocated an Edinburgh Business School mentor.
Your mentor will work with you in the preparation of your research proposal. The mentor will be a senior academic with experience of mentoring DBA students. Typically, the Mentored Phase lasts for six months.
The research proposal must be submitted to the Edinburgh Business School DBA Research Committee for approval. Once the research proposal is accepted, you will be allocated a supervisor whose expertise lies within your proposed area of research.
During this stage of the DBA programme, you work under the direction of your supervisor to conduct a literature review that supports your research and underpinning methodology, and carry out your research and write your thesis.
Your supervisor will be a senior academic with specific knowledge of your chosen area of research. He or she may or may not be a member of our faculty. You will have approximately six hours of contact time with the supervisor every month; communication will be primarily via email.
As with the research proposal, each stage of your research must be developed to a level acceptable to the Edinburgh Business School DBA Research Committee.
After acceptance of the literature review and synthesis, you will work on your thesis under the direction of your supervisor. The thesis is then submitted formally to the University and assessment takes the form of a review followed by an oral ‘defence’ of your thesis.
The examination will be conducted in person or by live video link at the University’s discretion.
Typically, the supervised phase lasts two to three years, but this can of course vary greatly by individual student.
Before starting any study, you need to complete the Edinburgh Business School DBA Application form (.pdf), which requires you to provide an outline of your proposed area of research. This will be sent to Edinburgh Business School in the UK for review along with two references and an official transcript of your Masters degree.
The entry criteria is 5 years experience and a relevant Masters degree – either an MBA or an MSc in business and management subject(s), or a relevant PhD.
There is no fixed start date for the DBA programme; you can apply and start your studies at any time of year.
You should also consult the Finding of a Research Topic Briefing Note before completing the DBA Application form.
If the DBA Admissions team decide that your existing Masters level qualifications are not suitable for the subject of your thesis idea, you may be advised to undertake an Edinburgh Business School MSc programme.
