The course is divided into three main phases: the first and second last for a minimum of one semester (6 months) each, and the third continues for a minimum of three further years. During the first two phases of the course, your study is undertaken through online study resources, online discussions, interaction with module leaders, and is supported by a personal academic advisor. For the third phase of the programme of study, you undertake a major research project that focuses on work you are undertaking in your organisation as a senior professional, typically in a change leadership role.
Throughout the course, which is studied part time, your focus will be on your professional activity in an organisational context. The DBA provides a structured framework for critically understanding your work-based activity, and equips you to operate as a reflective professional practitioner. The research project provides an opportunity for you to critically evaluate the learning you achieve while leading significant change in the workplace, and to express this in writing in a systematic way that is both informed by and informs relevant theory.
The Middlesex DBA recognises that professional practice is grounded in real organisations, and often in specific disciplines, and that practitioners taking the course will often belong to specific professional bodies. In order to recognise and harness the subject- and profession-specific nature of practitioners' individual practice, those taking the DBA will be encouraged to build learning relationships with other candidates working in similar spheres of activity.
In addition, specialist subject and professional advice will be available from expert and highly experienced staff within the Business School, especially in the following areas:
