Are you undertaking (or thinking of doing) a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) or other professional doctorate (PD) in business and management?  Or perhaps you’re supervising and delivering one of these programmes?  This is your complete - and practical - guide to succeeding on this course.

A Guide to Professional Doctorates in Business and Management has been written by a team of experts with experience of the challenges faced in both studying for and supervising professional doctorates in business and management.  Inside they address the key issues faced, in particular how these courses differ from a traditional PhD, and the different skills and approach needed for success.

Chapters explore the nature and importance of PDs as leading change in the professional world of practice, and how they need to differ from traditional forms of doctorate such as PhDs.  The guide also offers practical guidance on researching in this particular mode, and through writing and publishing a thesis, making a valuable contribution to professional knowledge.
