DBA Doctorate in Business Administration
The SDA Bocconi DBA is a 3 years part-time program aimed at successful international business professionals interested in developing the necessary skills to become thought leaders in their organizations and in their communities.
The goal is to help you develop a deeper understanding of how to apply rigorous academic research to concrete managerial problems.
"Our DBA gives you the mindset and the tools to think differently about management practice. It is based on rigorous thinking and
methodologies for approaching empirically relevant problems".
GIANMARIO VERONA | Rector, Bocconi University
"There are many ways in which managerial knowledge can advance. The most common ones are direct experience, trial-and-error, on the job learning, traditional executive training and education. With the SDA Bocconi DBA we want to challenge managers on a different level: we want them to start infusing managerial practice with a bit of science".
GIUSEPPE SODA | Dean, SDA Bocconi School of Management
"Developing a recognized thought leadership in your field requires the ability to develop new knowledge that is relevant in its concrete implications for managerial practice but also rigorously crafted according to the highest academic standards. During your DBA at SDABocconi, its internationally renown faculty will help you develop such new knowledge not only by interacting with you during class, but also by individually tutoring you in every step of your research projects".
