Doctor of Business Administration

Curtin University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
CRICOS: 00301J

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) has been designed to develop highly skilled, critical thinking and practical managers who can also read, carry out and apply the results of the research initiatives. It enables students with extensive business experience to design and concentrate their research on a practical business situation and to be sensitive to research questions and implications that are inescapable in the conduct of business.


Detailed information about the course structure is available through official Curtin pages:


  • This course is studied as a research degree, which requires that at least two-thirds of the course is undertaken by research and the remainder by coursework. In the case of the DBA, 100 credits are completed by coursework in addition to the research thesis. However, if appropriate, students may be required to undertake additional relevant preparatory units and this may increase the stated course duration. The thesis follows Rule Ten: Degree of Doctor of Research. Throughout their enrolment and as agreed with their supervisor, students are expected to attend and actively participate in research seminars and workshops held at the Curtin Business School to graduate with a DBA
