The research network

As a DBA student you will quickly become an integral part of our research network and will have unparalleled opportunities to become part of a thriving international academic community.

We support and encourage you to enhance your networks, making the most of opportunities to work with not only your supervisors but any academic colleagues researching in your area.

Faculty have responded enthusiastically to the research opportunity that the DBA offers, so that there are now approximately 70 Alliance MBS faculty supervising on the DBA programme. The value to faculty is the chance that the DBA provides to carry out research on topics of importance to them, whilst working with managers who have to resolve these self-same issues in their work places. This of course leads to some highly relevant research, in tune with our Original Thinking Applied mission.

Our networks stretch beyond the School. Our research centres and groups collaborate extensively with academic and business colleagues around the globe to disseminate research findings and methodologies, offering an impressive programme of stimulating debates, workshops, symposia and seminars led by leaders in their field.
