Program Overview

Program Description:

During years one and two of your Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), you will undertake six self-study courses through our innovative online learning platform. These are designed to equip you with the skills you will need for your business research project during your third and final year.

Your project could focus on a real-life business situation, or a problem that you are dealing with in your current work situation. It could also be a business idea that you want to explore or focus on, or current ideas that are impacting the industry you are working in. 

Throughout your time at Geneva Business School you will be supported by the DBA Program Manager and the program team in Barcelona. In your final year you will also receive direct support from an experienced professional from your field of interest.

Once the project is complete, you will present it to a panel of experts in your field.

With the support of a team of academics and business leaders located around the world, you will also benefit from our personalized mentoring approach, which will tailor the program to you and your professional circumstance. At the very beginning of your DBA journey we will take our time to get to know you, so that we can support you in the best way possible.“ Dr. Oliver Eliott (DBA Program Manager)
