You have probably heard of a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA), or maybe you have earned one as well. MBAs can certainly help you take your career to the next level, but what do you do when you’re ready to go even further – when you want to become a real business leader?



Ajman University’s Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) helps you rise above in the crowded field. The 4-year program is designed for active professionals who want to combine deep knowledge with practical skills to effectively develop their managerial and leadership abilities.

  • Innovative

It’s never been more important to be on the cutting-edge of technology, especially in the business world. The DBA program incorporates the latest innovations, including dynamic methodologies and comprehensive digital resources, to help students become creative, pioneering business leaders of the future.

  • Impactful

The DBA program isn’t just about delivering an outstanding educational experience for leading professionals, it’s also about creating an impact across markets. Close partnerships with local businesses and renowned experts means AU are ready to facilitate meaningful change.

Student can select from two tracks, based on their career goals:

Over a three- to four-year period, students complete 60 credits divided into two phases.
