A second international recognition for this program in 2020, since it was ranked 4th in the world and 2nd for learning innovation by the Dubai DBA ranking in October last year.
An innovative program for managers which wish to create and publish knowledge
The Executive DBA is aimed at managers, at business owners and at consultants that have built up experiences on the highest level in the business world, who wish to both create and publish knowledge. The Executive DBA differs from a traditional doctorate in that is more of a hands-on, pragmatic experience which still retains the necessary intellectual standards. It puts an emphasis on the « executive program » by the integration of theory management and practice into the business.
‘”The program of the Business Science Institute is the only DBA to have created a collection of work written by teachers and doctors”, says Michel Kalika, President of the Business Science Institute and Professor Emeritus at iaelyon School of Management.
200 doctoral students/managers coming from 43 countries
