RESEARCH IN ACTION
SP Jain’s Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a 3-year doctoral program designed to meet the needs of high-achieving professionals who wish to enhance their business education through original research. The program can be completed in three years full-time, or part-time in an equivalent period, and you can opt to study online or at our campus in Sydney.
The program builds on the business acumen of previously undertaken graduate studies, using global intelligence as a tool to solve business problems. It inspires you to develop new perspectives and approach business in an innovative way; it offers you the opportunity to study a real business issue in depth and immediately apply that knowledge in your working life, directly improving commercial outcomes within your organisation and beyond.
It offers all the academic rigour of a traditional PhD but is largely tailored to corporate executives and researchers who want a qualification that is practical and relevant to the organisation they work for.
The SP Jain DBA program gives the power of autonomy and complexity in the hands of the researcher so that the program can be blended with ‘life today’ for a rewarding ‘life tomorrow’. The program architecture is infused with the vintage of seasoned hands, banks of literature and simplicity of technology. The leadership of the program directors is hands-on with immense empathy, researchers’ participation is global, and the activeness of support teams of the program is unequivocally unlimited.
The collaboration with like-minded research institutes externally ensures that cross-pollinated learnings flow seamlessly to add significantly to the research fraternity. Researchers’ values of ethics are always considered of paramount importance and reinforced, led by example, at every periodicity.
I chose SP Jain's DBA program as it comes with a significant global reputation and provides comprehensive learning with flexibility and support from world-class faculty. I expect the program to benefit a lot of working professionals like me. I also see the advantage of pursuing this program in my professional career as I am able to implement the learning in my job to tackle complex business issues and have a methodological approach. I look forward to working more closely with SP Jain in publishing my papers and continuing to add to my knowledge.
SP Jain is a next generation learning institution that leverages technology, industry-ready content and qualified faculty to deliver high-quality learning experiences. For me, as a lifelong learner, the DBA was a perfect program to hone my applied research skills in a rapidly changing business environment to create customer success business models in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world.
The school has ample resources to conduct high-quality research. With outstanding doctoral training through rigorous coursework, the faculty helped me understand the nuances of the journey. I am happy to be part of a great cohort of supportive fellow DBA students. The professors are brilliant and full of passion for research.
