Your DBA at a glance
Relevance is at the center of every aspect of academic study in this DBA. You’ll focus on problems within strategy or leadership from your own professional experience and create new tools to help your company—and others like it—solve these problems.
Begin your doctoral journey by identifying a major business challenge that's directly relevant to you and not currently addressed by contemporary theories. Your research will lead you to create novel, rigorous tools to address that problem and improve the practice of management long-term. In addition to writing three publishable papers, you’ll also conduct two workshops. These practicums will guide students, clients, and peers from your own company in recognizing, and solving, the business problem.
How it works
The Hult DBA is a 30-month (2.5 year) program with a combination of on-campus residencies at our campuses around the world and structured online learning that can be completed anywhere. Our unique educational approach takes you beyond business to study every topic through a global lens, master working cross-culturally, leverage disruptive technologies to shape the future, and develop the deep self-awareness needed to lead effectively and with confidence.
