The Manchester DBA

The MBS doctoral programme is ranked first in the Financial Times Business School Rankings for 2012. The part-time DBA is aimed at global executives seeking a high level postgraduate qualification, without putting their careers on hold.

Challenging, flexible, portable and international, the Manchester Business School DBA is research in action. It offers you the opportunity to study a real business issue in depth and then immediately apply that knowledge in your working life, directly improving commercial outcomes within your organisation and beyond.

SJTU - UoM Joint DBA Programme

In May 2011, Manchester Business School signed contact for the joint DBA programme in conjunction with Antai Business School of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

With the business environment in China and the globe undergoing profound and complicated changes, a unique group of executive decision-makers are pursuing further study and higher degrees. The SJTU-UoM DBA Programme, an innovative and rigorous program, not only meets students’ desire for a doctoral degree, but also integrates academic strength at home and abroad in order to develop top entrepreneurs and executives in China - thinking globally and combining application, management and research excellence.

The programme is research-oriented and allows students to tackle current and critical business issues and challenges with an in-depth and analytical perspective.
