Research reputation

The majority of Aston Business School’s faculty is recognised as conducting research that is ranked as internationally excellent or world-class. Any Executive DBA applicant is guaranteed to have a supervisor who has an excellent research track record directly related to the DBA topic. This is a rare facility that can only be undertaken by an institution with the research breadth of Aston. The Executive DBA Programme will only take on an applicant if they can be supervised  by a member of faculty who is a ‘world-class’ researcher in their chosen field.

Aston Business School also operates a supervisory team approach meaning that when an area of Executive DBA crosses traditional boundaries, further supervisors from different backgrounds can be involved.

These people are amongst many who have all supervised Executive DBAs.
