The Doctor of Business Administration is an integrated coursework and research program that may be completed in a minimum of two and a half years. The coursework component consits of the first year. Courses are conducted in the classroom in an intensive workshop model with face-to-face contact. All courses are assessed by written assignment. The transition between the coursework phase and the research phase is by the candidate satisfactorily completing the set of assessed Research Proposals (one for each research project).
On satisfactory completion of the coursework units that are scheduled over the first year, candidates enter the research phase where they undertake individual, supervised research projects. The output of each research project is a research paper of publishable style and quality. The portfolio of research papers is submitted for external examination.
