It is a great pleasure to extend to you the warmest welcome and thank you for visiting the website of the DBA program , which is the latest program offered by the College of Business Administration at the University of Sharjah. The College of Business Administration offers three Bachelor programs in Accounting, Finance and Management. In addition, the college of Business offers two postgraduate programs. The first and oldest program is the Executive MBA program, which is a professional program aimed primarily at those who have graduated from university and have achieved advanced management positions. The second program is the MBA program, which is a modern program that was launched in 2016/2017. The MBA program has achieved great successes to become one of the largest programs at the university. The success of the two postgraduate programs has been a strong incentive to launch the Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) program. The other incentive is the availability of faculty with a high level of academic and research experience. The program mainly targets MBA and Executive MBA holders with at least five years of management experience, preferably those with advanced management positions as well as those with research experience (thesis, research annotation or published research).
The program is divided into two stages. The first stage is the academic preparation through the study of eight courses (24 hours), half of which focuses on the research methodology (descriptive and quantitative research methods) while two courses focus is on decision-making. The other remaining two courses are allocated to the Special Field Seminars. The second stage consists of (24) credit hours, (6) hours of which will be allocated hours to prepare the proposal of the doctoral dissertation. While the remaining (18) hours are allocated to the preparation of the doctoral dissertation.
I wish you a successful scientific journey in the University of Sharjah and bear in mind that you are achieving the highest academic degrees. I am delighted to welcome you in office during the official working hours of the university to talk face to face on topics related to the program and the challenges you might face. You can also contact me by e-mail (email@example.com) or telephone (06 5053519) in case of any inquiry.
