Our dba programme

The DBA programme is a four-year, blended doctoral programme for experienced professionals. Upon completion of the courses, assignments, research and successful defence of the doctoral dissertation, you gain a joint PhD degree from Ghent University and from KU Leuven.

The Doctorate in Business Administration is designed to be flexible and tailored to you and your ambitions. You can organise your academic work around your schedule – and put together your own programme of self-study, residential sessions, academic conferences and events.

The programme is split into a learning stage and a research stage – giving you the knowledge and skills you need to carry out individual and guided thesis work. You will be supported and guided from the start by a team of supervisors.
