Because it is work-focused there is no interruption to your earning power.
DBA candidates must be in possession of a recognized Master’s Degree; i.e., it has to be awarded by an officially acknowledged Higher Education Institution. graduates without a Master’s Degree, who have been awarded another recognized Degree directly comparable to a Postgraduate Degree (equivalent to level 7 of studies) may be admitted. This regulation acknowledges national differences, which may exist internationally.
In many disciplines, research has become a truly collaborative national and international endeavour where institutional, regional, and national boundaries are no longer an obstacle to collaboration. This also has benefited our students, who can easily contact researchers, fellow students, and professionals all over the world. This has provided them with tremendous opportunity for expanding their vision.
