If you would like to receive an informal assessment of whether your experience and career goals are a good fit for the DBA, you can submit your CV for review by our DBA team.
How to apply
To apply you will need to submit your CV along with a research proposal document expressing what you are interested in researching, and how you intend to use the academic insights offered by the programme to tackle a specific issue within your organisation.
The final application deadline for the DBA 2023 intake is Friday 31 March. However, as the DBA is a highly competitive programme, we may close earlier than the deadline if a high number of applications are received; therefore, we suggest applying early to avoid disappointment.
A waitlist may be offered to any subsequent applications, although consideration cannot be guaranteed once the waitlist phase has commenced.
Our application process
Contact the DBA team find out more about the programme, discuss your motivations for pursuing a DBA, and ask any questions you may have.
You may wish to arrange a 1-2-1 meeting or call with the DBA Course Director to discuss your research idea in more detail, or attend one-to-one of our DBA Open Evenings.
Apply using our online form, including all of the required documentation.
Your application will be reviewed by the DBA Programme Directors for review. Successful applicants will be invited to interview via Skype or by telephone.
If you have been successful in your application, you will receive a formal offer letter from us.
You will then be required to accept your place on the programme, so your place is confirmed.
You will then receive information regarding registration, induction, and what to expect during your time with us.
