  • Das Buch Der erfolgreiche Weg zum DBA (Doctorate in Business Administration) mchte die Fragen beantworten, die sich Führungskräfte stellen, die aus der objektiven Distanz heraus eine in ihrer Führungserfahrung verankerte Doktorarbeit verteidigen und verffentlichen sowie Wissen schaffen mchten.
    Was ist ein DBA? Welche Unterschiede gibt es zwischen einem DBA und einem Ph.D.? Wie ist ein DBA in nur drei Jahren mglich? Wie wählt man ein DBA-Programm? Sollte man ein DBA im Präsenz- oder im Fernstudium wählen? Wie findet man das richtige Thema für seine DBA-Doktorarbeit? Wie findet man seinen Betreuer? Wie beginnt man seinen DBA? Welche Methodologie/en sollte man für seinen DBA wählen? Welchen Aufbau knnte man für seine DBA-Doktorarbeit verwenden? Und letztendlich: Wie kann man seinen DBA gewinnbringend nutzen?
    /> Auf alle diese Fragen hat der Autor klare und pragmatische Antworten, die auf seiner Erfahrung mit der Leitung von DBA-Programmen beruhen, und er schlägt folgende drei Etappen auf dem Weg zum DBA vor:
    1. Die Wahl eines DBA
    2. Die Wahl des DBA-Themas
    3. Die Organisation des DBA

  • The thesis completed as part of the Doctorate in Business Administration, called the DBA, requires the candidate to choose from a wide range of research methods and tools so this project can become reality. Determining, choosing, implementing and contextualizing research methods and tools are all crucial steps for the success of the research work undertaken as part of the DBA thesis.
    The 30 chapters of this book have been prepared to the attention of DBA candidates, to orient and guide them in choosing research methods and tools. The first part raises the question of the choice of research methods; the second one deals with data collection methods; the third part focuses on data analysis methods; and the fourth surveys the contextualization of methods. Written so as to ensure contents are accessible and to foster learning, the chapters provide the foundations and resources to guide methodological choices.
    This book is the English augmented edition of the French edition published as part of the Business Science Institute collection. The aim is to produce reference books to guide the academic work of doctoral candidates in the scientific training curriculum of the DBA. The first collective book published in 2015, The Creation of Knowledge by Managers (available in French), aimed to establish the main guidelines for this new role assumed by managers in management practice: that of new knowledge producers. Also part of the collection, the book How to Successfully Complete Your DBA?, aims to guide the research elaboration and execution of the DBA thesis.

  • The thesis written in the course of a Doctorate of Business Administration (or DBA) raises many questions for future DBA candidates concerning its specific orientation, content and scope.
    Given the central role of the thesis project in the process of educating DBA candidates, who will hold a practice-oriented doctoral degree in management, it appeared to be the perfect time to stimulate a collective reflection process on this crucial phase of work on a doctoral thesis: the development of the DBA thesis proposal and project.
    This book is the latest in the series of publications launched in 2015 by the Business Science Institute in partnership with the publisher EMS, with the aim of producing a set of books that will guide the academic work of doctoral candidates on the threshold of the scientific education process that culminates in a DBA. The collection published in 2015, La création de connaissance par les managers, was intended to establish the main benchmarks for the new role managers are assuming in their practice: producer of new scientific knowledge. Then the imposing Research Methods for the DBA (published 2019) presented a diversified set of methodological approaches and tools new researchers can use to conduct their DBA research.
    The articles collected in this book are written mainly for candidates who need guidance and orientation as they start to formulate their thesis research project. Among other things, it presents the various steps in the process of developing a detailed thesis proposal, describes the factors that ensure a high-quality thesis project statement, and clarifies the roles and expectations candidates must handle as they initiate their research projects.
