Dubai: Westford University College (WUC) has launched one of the most affordable Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) programmes in the UAE, reinventing the learning pathway for ambitious professionals. The doctorate degree is developed in partnership with Universidad Catolica De Murcia (UCAM), Spain, ranked one of the top-10 universities in Europe by Times Higher Education Ranking in 2019 for Quality Education.
The DBA course is aimed to develop analytical and consultancy skills in learners for solving complex issues in business and management through rigorous industry applied research. The programme will be beneficial to C-level executives, senior managers, department heads, consultants, management educators and entrepreneurs at the most affordable cost in the region. WUC has pioneered in business education for 10 years, and this new challenging, flexible and global business programme will intensify the professional growth of executives while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
This programme is structured in two stages. The first year consists of five taught modules with 60 ECTS Credits. The purpose of Year One is to provide a theoretical and practical foundation in research methodology for advanced empirical research within the management field. The later part of the Year One is to apply knowledge and understanding of research methodology to an actual pilot study with a thesis proposal. The curriculum design offers the leaners with an opportunity to reflect on their performance as a researcher.
Successful students of stage one will progress to the final “Practice Based Thesis” which will be completed in two years from the beginning of the research. Maximum duration allowed for the research is three years with one year as the minimum time frame. Considering the busy schedule of professionals, WUC appreciates the efforts of learners who would seek an early exit from the course by offering Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Management by Universidad Catolica De Murcia, Spain. This is awarded when the student decides to exit the programme without completing the final research thesis.
WUC has commenced this prestigious programme upon the request of its more than 20,000 global alumni willing to pursue higher education. The doctoral programme will enable learners to provide relevant contributions to theory, practice and research in business and management. WUC takes immense pride to give an ambitious opportunity for all professionals at an affordable price to turn their corporate experience into knowledge and make a real impact on business in future.
