Program Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)

At the Faculty of Business Administration (FBA), we offer a three-year combined Doctor of Business Administration (hereinafter referred to as “DBA”) program.

The DBA program is a “professional doctorate”, the main characteristic of which is the acquisition of deep knowledge and the use of the principles in scientific work, especially scientific research methodology, to solve a complex problem of the company or economic practice. The program is designed for managers with a minimum experience of 5 years (in exceptional cases of 3 years), of which at least a partial experience has been in a managerial position, and professionals who need to use the principles of applied management research to solve practical problems. The program is implemented in English and is completed by obtaining the title and diploma of DBA VŠE. Prerequisite for entry into the program is also a Master’s degree or an MBA degree.

The study plan of the DBA program consists of three areas, which are study obligations, requirements for research and creative activities and other obligations (obtaining points for other professional activities and outputs). These areas are described below.

DBA is a demanding program, combining full-time learning along with its online form, in the range of min. 112 hours of learning, regular consultations with a supervisor and, in selected cases, with a business mentor, over the period of 3 years, and independent creative work in solving problems, in the range of about 1000 hours.
