During years one and two of your doctorate, you will undertake 6 self-study courses through our innovative online learning platform. These are designed to equip you with the skills you will need for your business research project during your third and final year.
This project could focus on a real-life business situation, or a problem that you are dealing with in your current work situation. It could also be a business idea that you want to explore or focus on, or current ideas that are impacting the industry you are working in.
Throughout your time at GBS you will be supported by the DBA Program Manager and the program team in Barcelona. In your final year you will also receive direct support from an experienced professional who is in the same field of interest as you.
Once the project is complete, you will present it to a panel of experts in your field.

Dr. Oliver Eliott
DBA Program Manager
“I am a first year DBA student of Geneva Business School in Astana Campus. So far, I have completed three courses and I can say that the Program fully met my expectations. The main distinctive feature of this Program is that it is designed for working people, which means that you can maintain your professional life, family responsibilities while being an almost full-time doctoral student. The modules are designed so that you have normal live classes with professors every 3-month period, constant online homework occupation and continuous support of your DBA Program Director and supervisor. This is more than enough to immerse yourself into research world without giving up your main professional occupation and sacrificing your work-life balance. I am very grateful to Geneva Business School for designing this format of DBA Program, which became a very natural continuation of my professional and personal development process.”
