The Aston Executive DBA offers a wide range of facilities in order to ease your transition into the world of research. A specifically tailored distance learning course, coupled with exemplary customer care and world-class supervision ensures that you have all the necessary tools to create knowledge.
A tailored and dedicated distance learning delivery
One of the key features of the Executive DBA is its distance learning delivery mode. The course has made a substantive investment in ICT support to make this experience work. The DBA exploits the latest version of the Blackboard™ Virtual Learning Environment, which enables the taught components of the Executive DBA to be delivered online, via learning materials designed to meet the needs of the DBA student specifically. Podcasts, vodcasts, directed reading and online tasks and quizzes are provided for students to work through. Virtual discussion boards are used to conduct asynchronous online sessions between students and course tutors. Videoconferencing further supports live individual and group discussions as well as research supervision.
Understanding and exemplary customer care and support
We understand that undertaking the Executive DBA is a huge commitment, we also know that time for any senior level manager is precious. This is why we offer a dedicated team to ensure your distance learning experience is one of efficiency. As well as this, the course offers an experienced Course Director, who has extensive experience with the DBA and gained her own doctorate on a part time basis.
The Executive DBA can be completed in four years.
