Program Brief:

You would like to have an excellent academic career as a lecturer, researcher, trainer or administrator in a respectable education organization, but you lack the required qualification.
You would like to pursue a European Doctorate Degree but you are unable to leave your current commitments for 3-5 years to do that.

You are working in the education sector and you are looking for career advancement and better salary but do not yet possess the required qualification and the experience.

 

OUR new  Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program

is designed to give you the tools, knowledge and flexibility  to grow without interrupting your current plans.

In this program you will experience a new level of education. We will utilize our Swiss managerial skills and experiences to prepare and teach you. Our lecturers are international experts who graduated from European and American universities and each one of them has the relevant experience and knowledge in their respective field.

The Flexi-DBA program is aimed at producing graduates who are confident and able to understand, comprehend and carry out relevant research related to problems faced by business organizations; they are motivated, independent, knowledgeable and with attitude that will place them among the top in the international business marketplace.

Last but not least, this program provides you with real flexibility during your study period.

 

The Real Flexibility

We teach 8  modules throughout the program. Each module takes 4 weeks to finish. Once we have finished teaching all the 8 modules we will start over again. This teaching plan gives students the chance to study at their own convenience- meaning students can skip a month or more due to personal or other reasons and they can join the missed module when we teach it again after 8 months.

Students can choose to join one module at a time and may not necessarily complete the entire program at one go. For example they may just want to do a few modules each summer and finish the entire program in 2 or 3 years. It is entirely up to the individual student.

IBAS gives the students the flexibility that no other institution will allow.

  1. Lecturers with excellent qualifications and experience in the respective field.
  2. Improve students’ research methodology and skills.
  3. Improve students’ analytical, critical thinking and problem solving skills.
