The Doctor of Business Administration at Winchester is designed to give you the tools to become thought and practice leaders in your field, with the capabilities to gather and make sense of the information you need to operate and lead in a global environment.

During this period of exponential change, there is increasing demand for business professionals who can make sound decisions in situations of complexity and uncertainty. At Winchester, we focus on helping you to become a recognised thought leader, known for leading-edge expertise in your field and able to network with recognised experts all over the world. We also build your leadership capacity by equipping you with high-level research skills that enable you to build confidence and demonstrate evidence-based decision-making, which assists in career progression to more senior roles. Graduating with the title of ‘Doctor’ could open important career and professional opportunities for you.

For the first two years of the programme, there are taught modules that equip you with the knowledge and skills required for the research phase of the thesis. A pilot project then further develops your advanced research skills. Finally, you submit a 55,000-word thesis which is assessed by means of a viva voce. A particular feature of these stages is the use of action learning sets, facilitated by experienced research-active academics, where you are able to share your learning and experience while simultaneously supporting and challenging your peers.
