The BSL DBA in Sustainable Business is an equally challenging and fulfilling experience that will enable you to dive deep in rigorous exploration of topics that matter to you, while also reflecting on your personal journey as an individual and professional who wants to make a difference.
- You will build expertise in sustainability action research through your participation in a collaborative research project with an international group of participants. Through the project, you will develop insights in three key domains: moving from business-as-usual to business sustainability (based on existing research); adapting to the new paradigm (based on emerging best practices); and becoming a truly sustainable organization (based on input from pioneers).
- You will acquire new research methodologies for tackling complex business and societal issues and will develop skills in leading change, consulting transforming organizations, and integrating sustainability and responsibility in business. You will advance your knowledge in sustainability and will combine it a deeper understanding of responsible leadership practices.
- You will build a global network of applied sustainability scholars and will become part of a community of experienced business professionals or teaching scholars who are at the forefront of developing practical applications for integrating sustainability to business.
The program in a nutshell
The program is part-time, distance learning, and takes about 3 years to complete. Designed for working professionals, it allows candidates to research independently and in their own time. The program requires a visit at BSL once per year for the Annual Research Symposium which gathers all teaching instructors and research candidates for one week.
Throughout the program, doctoral candidates will be supported at each stage of research and writing and will be encouraged to share their learning and experience with cohort participants. In close collaboration with the Global Doctoral Alliance (GDA) of 50+20, a number of training workshops will be offered as webinars and symposia.
