FAQ

The DBA is for professionals who wish to develop an analysis of their practice and deepen the theoretical aspects of their professional activity. The amount of teaching time is limited in order to be compatible with the professional activity. The professional thesis in management sciences is therefore based on professional experience in a company. 

The PhD is proposed as a variant of the DBA. Here, the research focuses on an area of specialization of the DBA and is based on fieldwork and not on professional experience in the field. The topics can therefore be more theoretical.
