French grande école Audencia and Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences have signed a partnership to offer the Audencia DBA programme in the Netherlands and France
The Doctorate of Business Administration is a three-year, part-time, professional doctorate in business administration awarded by Audencia Business School; the programme is set to commence in November.
The DBA has been specifically created for academically minded business professionals who are looking to combine their years of work experience with a rigorous academic programme leading to the Audencia DBA degree.
In partnership with Wittenborg, students will follow the first year of study at Wittenborg’s Amsterdam location, while years two and three will be completed at Audencia’s Paris or Nantes campuses. The majority of the Audencia Business School courses are delivered online over the duration of the programme. The flexible programme adapts to the pace of executive life by offering most of the teaching in a hybrid format, both distance and face-to-face, during the week and at the weekend.
During the course, students will develop management research skills, master research and analysis methodology and write and present their thesis in the final year.
“This partnership is expected to allow Audencia to increase its brand awareness by focusing on offering programmes that are extremely attractive to both Dutch and international students”, commented Audencia DBA programme director Ji-Yong Lee.
The DBA is aimed at candidates who are over 25 years old, fluent in English, with an MBA or master’s degree, as well as five years’ professional experience of managerial responsibilities.
