Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is the pinnacle of management education. It is as academically rigorous as a PhD, but it is designed for experienced professional managers and combines academic theories and concepts, with business and management practices.

The programme imparts the advance knowledge, alongside conceptual and strategic skills that are expected of corporate leaders to lead the robust service and manufacturing sectors in Malaysia. By enabling learners to capitalise on their respective career and practical experiences, the inventory skill set and other significant learning support, learners will successfully accomplish the personal, professional and organisational outcomes of the programme.


The significant parts of the DBA work are the coursework comprising core areas in business and management and a dissertation of an applied research written under the guidance of a supervisor. The dissertation must be a substantial original contribution to the knowledge or understanding of any field through the discovery of new facts, the formulation of theories or the innovative reinterpretation of known data and established ideas. It must demonstrate the capacity to conceive, design, conduct, interpret and write scientific independent research.
