This thought-provoking text offers insight into the many dimensions of the DBA award. It clearly confronts the challenges and expectations of becoming a successful ‘researcher-practitioner’. The book will be of value and support to both current and prospective DBA candidates, and faculty who are engaged in delivering and supervising this professional doctorate.
This informed and highly informative book leads the way in opening a dialogue, and creating a vision, on what a DBA could and should be. It is a must-have for anyone interested in the creation of professional and actionable knowledge.
This excellent book provides a detailed and thought-provoking guide for those engaged in or considering studying for a DBA. It also offers valuable insights into how both practice and engagement can be incorporated into the design and delivery of such programmes and therefore will appeal to both students and teachers alike.
The time for professional doctorates has come. This much-needed book provides an essential guide to the world's most famous professional doctorate, the DBA. Highly recommended for all students, scholars, supervisors and academic leaders in business and management science.
A Guide to Professional Doctorates in Business and Management is the first book of its kind that provides a comprehensive and clear picture about the value of a DBA program, its differences from the standard PhD program, and the way to prepare for a DBA thesis. I strongly recommend this book to all DBA program offices and advise all DBA students to take it as their reference guide on their thesis development.
This book is long overdue and is a “must read” for anyone involved in professional doctorates in business and management. Written by thought leaders in their respective fields this comprehensive book provides clear signposting about the nature of a professional doctorate, considerations for research and its implications. I cannot recommend it highly enough to you.
While there is a large and varied repertoire of books available on PhDs, this is the most helpful book on the DBA that I have found. The contributions of the various authors are complementary and, taken together; provide a comprehensive perspective on the DBA, its history, strengths, and trajectory. I will undoubtedly return to the book periodically to support my practice.
