ESCE DBA

DBA AT A GLANCE

 

ESCE International Business School Paris is launching a DBA in partnership with University of Valencia.

The program is aimed at managers with at least five years of international experience who are eager to become  world-class experts in International Business.

WHY PURSUE A DBA?

The DBA is aimed at training high-level executives and consultants who want to build on their professional achievements to become experts in their field and share  their  experience  through leadership, consulting or teaching.

Participants  are  trained  to conduct research of high managerial relevance. They are  able  to take advantage of the most recent research advances in the discipline of International Business and transfer them to Multinational Enterprises, consulting firms and export promotion agencies. Typical positions include head  of  research,  chief consulting officer or business consulting director. An optional track preparing participants to qualify  as  professors/instructors  in  accredited business schools is also available.

 

PROGRAM CONTENT

The DBA program requires strong motivation for research and the ability to work on a long- term project: the doctoral dissertation. The first year is dedicated to acquiring the basics of research in International Business. Ten research seminars are taught face-to-face. However, online attendance will be available for non-European students. The dissertation is based on an original research project, including an empirical study, and is written in English. Doctoral candidates are supervised by two program professors who help them organize their work schedule and validate each step of the dissertation.

The DBA is a three-year program, with a dissertation presentation at the end of the final year.
