What this Double degree DBA offers, in contrast to most other executive-level education, is an opportunity for senior executives to carry out original research in a particular area of their business in great depth. It allows them to do this whilst staying in their job, and will also give them the chance to examine and solve a particular business challenge that their company faces. In a world that is becoming ever more fractured, this unique Anglo-French collaboration with Durham University Business School demonstrates our belief in the importance of international collaboration through high quality teaching and impactful research.
