Kaplan Hong Kong DBA

Kaplan Hong Kong DBA

A DBA that works around you

The Hong Kong DBA will give you the full Aston DBA experience without having to leave Hong Kong. The programme is taught and supervised by leading academics from Aston Business school who will do the travelling for you giving you more time to focus on your career and research.

The Aston Experience

The programme is structured in the same way as the Executive DBA, however, the first year Research Methods Course (RMC) modules will be taught face-to-face by Aston University faculty at the Kaplan Campus in Hong Kong. This initial period of contact is a great way to connect with your DBA classmates and tap into the knowledge offered by our world-class academic supervisors.

At the start of the programme, you will be paired with an academic supervisor who is an expert in your field of study. You'll meet face-to-face with them on a yearly basis and be able to keep in touch more regularly through video conferencing and email.

All successful DBA candidates will be awarded a Research Training Grant of £1,500 to be used throughout your studies for activities that will support your research. You'll also have access to our e-library service allows you to access a variety of business databases covering a wide range of relevant topics in addition to a range of resources offered by Kaplan including the media lab and resource centre.

The Aston DBA proposition addressed my requirements extremely well almost on an end-to-end basis from being able to find a knowledgeable supervisor, research material that I could possibly read through, methodological tools, technology tools, all the facilities guidance and infrastructure that I could possibly need."
