The Alliance MBS DBA is 'research in action' - an opportunity to gain a doctoral degree while you continue working. It offers you the chance to tackle an important, unresolved business and managerial problem in a rigorous and systematic way and to contribute to your organisation’s success while developing academic knowledge and theories. The Manchester DBA programme is a mixture of online and residential coursework and interaction, combined with a supervisor-guided dissertation project. It is structured over four years with a focus on the coursework components in Years 1 and 2. The programme offers flexibility in that you can supplement, and in some cases substitute, your Alliance MBS coursework with elective modules available elsewhere.

The basic DBA entry requirements are: A Bachelor's Honours degree (normally equivalent to a UK First Class or 2:1); A Master's or MBA degree (a minimum final grade equivalent to a UK 60%; or B; or GPA of 3.0 out 4.0); A minimum of 6 years full-time management experience, showing significant career progression; Spoken and written English-language competency equivalent to IELTS: 7.0 or TOEFL: 623 paper-based (or 106 internet-based). Meeting these requirements does not guarantee entry to the programme, but failure to meet them lowers the likelihood of acceptance.
