___________________________________________________________________________

 

                                                                                                     

 

Description

This year’s DBA symposium will examine the topic of building healthy DBA programmes, both to attract sustainable numbers of students and to meet the developing needs of industry. Looking at a broad range of factors impacting on valuable and successful DBA programmes, participants will learn from a wealth of tested ideas and have the opportunity to explore their own challenges in this important area.

A two-track event developed for DBA faculty and students from around the UK, the 2020 DBA Symposium is being run in collaboration between the Chartered Association of Business Schools and the British Academy of Management. As in previous years, this symposium is designed to include parallel programmes for faculty involved in managing and teaching DBA programmes and for DBA students.

For faculty involved in DBAs/Executive Doctorates: A programme for those involved in managing, teaching and assessing DBA/Executive Doctorates in business and management. The aim is to provide a forum for sharing experiences and good practice in order to build a supportive network within BAM and Chartered ABS. Speakers will include faculty with extensive experience of DBA/Executive Doctorate provision.

DBA faculty delegates at this event will:

  • Examine how a flexible approach can ensure high quality DBA programmes, while also meeting student needs;
  • Learn about the considerations for ensuring that a new DBA programme is sustainable, and how those considerations might be applied to existing programmes;
  • Explore how best to develop long-term strategic relationships to support promotion of the DBA to students and industry;
  • Consider some options for growing a DBA programme through partnerships to improve its sustainability, while protecting its core value;
  • Discuss with other DBA faculty participants strategies for tackling some of the challenges being faced in this area.

For DBA/Executive Doctorate Students:  A parallel programme will be run for DBA students to discuss their doctoral research in a supportive setting. One of the best ways to progress research is to present and receive feedback on research and ideas to date. DBA/Executive Doctorate students are therefore invited to submit a structured summary of their work in no more than 1,000 words by 30 March 2020. Submissions are welcome from students in all stages of their doctorates. Submission guidelines are available here.

All participants will also benefit from the great opportunity provided by this annual event to meet with peers and discuss issues relating to the DBA programme.
