Executive Doctorate in Business Administration
Dates: 28 August - 6 September, 2017
Today very few businesses remain untouched by the momentous trends toward globalisation. Increasingly global markets are creating the need for a truly international management style.
This Joint Executive DBA programme is made up of a unique partnership between Galilee International Management Institute and Paris School of Business, representing different geographical and cultural backgrounds. The programme is designed to enable working professionals to remain in their managerial positions while undertaking periods of study and will provide the necessary tools to contribute to the production and dissemination of the applied science in areas of management and business administration.
It is a full-fledged degree, but contrary to the Ph.D. the focus is on professional experience. It is an opportunity to broaden personal and professional horizons by encompassing careers that are in the highest echelons of the corporate, business and academic worlds. The uniqueness of the Executive DBA is the utilization of accumulated life experience as a foundation for research. The programme focuses on the production of concepts and methods that contribute to advance the management science corpus.
The programme is entirely in English.
