Give your professional career a boost with a DBA

The DBA, Doctorate in Business Administration, is designed for working professionals who wish to go further in their knowledge and give a new breath to their career. This doctorate, which is delivered to best adapt their professional constraints, provides a real value to a resume. Highly motivated to advance their career and acquire a new approach, doctoral students recognize the merits and positive attributes gained from such programs.

Give your professional career a boost

Acquiring new skills and perspectives

After years of professional experience, it is not uncommon to find yourself faced with questions about how to evolve your career. MBA degree holders, or equivalent, may go on to pursue a DBA, following the example of this telecom professional who started out to move his career forward when he became paralyzed by fear to be stuck after several years in office. He explains that he wanted to have an impact on the quality of the missions assigned to him: “Since my DBA, I have been entrusted with a lot more research work to do”.

The DBA allows students, based on a research program and a 3-year basic education, to acquire new skills but also a new vision of their activity. Alexina Portal, a doctoral student, explains that “the DBA requires us to think differently, to structure our approach (…). I use this methodology in my daily professional life and I approach my job in a completely different way”.

A pillar of professional development

While the DBA offers a remarkable feat of expertise, it also represents a real career accelerator, making it possible to occupy a key position within a company, whether in France or abroad. The program is up to the expectations of professionals who want to offer the best to their company, following the example of this HR director in the field of mass distribution who wanted to work on “adapting managers’ skills” to fit actual needs.

The American Business School offers a DBA in partnership with the American Franklin University located in Ohio, to enable doctoral students to obtain a dual diploma. Fady Fadel, Dean of the school, explains that “globalization brings them, but also the development strategies of companies that are looking for people who are strong academically, polyglot and able to work in a multicultural universe”.
