The DBA Programme Administrator supports the Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA): Higher Education Management. The role involves all aspects of programme admissions as well as administration of the taught- and the research-stages of the programme – an exciting mix of responsibilities, rarely found in other programme administrative roles.

The DBA is a higher-regarded professional doctorate, delivered by one of the UK's best business schools. It provides a unique focus on Higher Education Management, designed specifically for university leaders and managers, based around the world. Students develop research skills relevant to higher education managers, combining knowledge gained on the programme with professional practice in their workplace.
