DESIGN POWERFUL BUSINESS SOLUTIONS FOR THE FAST-CHANGING BUSINESS WORLD
Challenging, flexible and international — SP Jain Global’s Doctor of Business Administration is research in action.
SP Jain Global’s Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a 3-year online business program that provides senior business professionals the academic tools and practical skills to develop research-based solutions for contemporary business challenges, innovate and emerge as thought leaders and change agents.
The program builds on the business acumen of previously undertaken graduate studies, using global intelligence as a focus to equip students with the skills needed to solve critical business problems. The program offers all the academic rigour of a traditional PhD but is largely tailored to an executive audience and researchers who want a qualification that will help them advance their business education and add immediate value to their organisation and career.
Global intelligence is a key focus of our DBA program. The program provides students with a structured coursework component in the first year that teaches skills to conduct a variety of research investigations. These investigative techniques are practised to provide students with an applied exposure and experience to enhance global intelligence.
In the next two years, students will undertake a research project with practical significance, under the guided supervision of at least one academic staff member, which will aim to significantly add to or improve current business practices. Research can be undertaken anywhere in the world with the approval of the School, providing students with a truly global intelligence.
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 School of Global Management 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 Doctor of Business Administration 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.
