DBA testimonial

"I have significant years of experience but have a practical research question, which has driven me to study as a researcher in a well-structured format, like the DBA. I strongly believe that this DBA research would structure my thinking process and help me to excel in my field. This would not only benefit the occupational health & safety fraternity but will help me to distinguish myself from others by obtaining the Doctorate Degree."
