About the Awards
Applications are invited for a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) fee waiver bursary in the Hertfordshire Business School at the University of Hertfordshire. The bursary is offered on a part-time basis and provides a full tuition fee waiver for five years and additional research funding to support fieldwork costs and appropriate conference attendance. The DBA offers the opportunity for those with an enthusiasm for learning to gain a professional doctorate, the highest level of professional qualification available in business and management. Drawing on the work of international experts in our Business School, researchers on the programme learn about the latest management techniques and research methods, and the skills and knowledge gained help improve the effectiveness of the organisation and enhance individual careers and professional development.
The successful applicant will be part of a stimulating research community which will fully support them on their path towards academic excellence, reflecting the enhanced position of the School in the recent Research Excellence Framework in Business and Management. Ranked 1st globally for overall research student satisfaction for Business and Economics research degree programmes (2019 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey), the University of Hertfordshire is also ranked 10th globally for postgraduate research student satisfaction (2021 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey). Our ambition is to nurture and develop the next generation of Business and Management researchers alongside our ambitious and dynamic colleagues.
