International Higher Education’s “Academic Qualified” Grade

Executive Doctorate of Business Administration

Combines professional experience and applied research

Who is this program for?

The world in general and the business world in particular are changing fast. In this difficult and complex environment, managers and executives seek to organize their strategic thinking by identifying emerging trends or directions.

The TBS Education Executive DBA program is an international 4-year professional doctorate program giving access to the International Higher Education “Academic Qualified” degree.

You will have the opportunity to access three of our campuses during your DBA: Paris, Toulouse and Barcelona.

Far from being academic and theoretical, the research approach in the Executive DBA gives the decision-maker the tools to formulate hypotheses and to validate them scientifically. This limits the risks involved in decision-making in an uncertain environment, while at the same time cultivating the innovation and originality needed to define areas of differentiation in the face of competition.

It’s this spirit of “piloting change” that is shared by both the participants in the Executive DBA, who are experienced company managers, and the faculty, who are invested in supporting them.

The Executive DBA is for active executives and directors who wish, through the writing of a thesis, to deepen an area of expertise based on their professional practice and input from academic research.
