Athena Global Education launched the Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) program in partnership with Universidad Católica De Murcia (UCAM), Spain, ranked among top 10 universities in Europe by Times Higher Education Ranking-2019 for Quality Education. The DBA is a blended part-time professional doctoral degree with an international scope and reputation, designed to sharpen critical and analytical expertise through the application of sound theory and rigorous research into real and complex issues in business and management.

“We are indeed very excited to launch the DBA program which has been designed in partnership with UCAM to develop relevant skills and leadership qualities to make you an expert in your domain and also opens multiple opportunities for you,” says Mr Firoz Thairinil, Founder & CEO, Westford Education Group.

The duration of the DBA program is 3 years and it offers a well- structured coursework devised to build research competencies. This is followed by a research project that aims to demonstrate the skills and knowledge gained in the initial course work, contributing to the improvement and enhancement of existing business practices. It is tailored for full time professionals with MBA or Master’s degree and at least 3- year managerial experience. The final degree will be awarded at the convocation held at the UCAM.

“I am delighted to introduce this innovative DBA program which has been formulated to meet the aspirations of busy professionals who are ready for the intellectual rigors of doctoral study in order to become experts in their field of management. The DBA equips them to make a significant contribution to their own organisations,” says Dr. Andrew Hambler, Director of the DBA program.

Admission to the DBA program is open to the first batch of students and is scheduled to start in the third week of August 2020. For further information, please get in touch with Ms Fatima Razi, Head of Admission at
