Advantage of DBA over Ph.D for Professionals from the Industry
Unlike other research universities, UBDP specializes only in
Doctoral Business Administration (DBA) which relies more on
applied premises. In general, the focus of a Ph.D program is
to develop new theory, whereas the focus of a DBA program is
to apply blend of theory and empiricism for the advancement of
given business practices.
The Ph.D in Social Science is also research based degree but
it gives more emphasis on theoretical aspects and therefore
their goal shall be academic career while DBA is for ambitious
professionals from Industry. DBA is the best platform to mould
the given potential of the accomplished professionals through
systematic research skills training and guidance to create
sustainable business models for the betterment of the
globalized market economy. However, both Ph.D and DBA program
require original research culminating in the creation and
defense of Thesis or Dissertation.
