  • The DBA  program has  no time frame, it is a life-long  program.  Upon  completion of studies all participants receive the privilege of a life-long right to  be part of all study events, organized by IBS, including   classes and trainings at  any of IBS programs, seminars, conferences,  and meetings with experts  and public figures. 

  • The DBA program is custom-made for each participant.  Apart from the classes, that  are a compulsory  part of the program, each participant  can choose  any course  from other IBS programs,  that are in line with the participant’s  preferred interests and   learning objectives.  During the preparation of the dissertation  each participant  works in close contact with his/her  own personal mentor. Individual consulting sessions are  provided by  professionals, experts,  management practitioners and  researchers.

  • The DBA program helps the participants to explore the state-of-the-art and the newest trends  in contemporary management. In the 21st century  success cannot be achieved  by relying on the traditional and generally accepted  management methods. It is of paramount importance  to aim at innovation,  to identify  the trends, that are not yet obvious and have not yet formed completely.  These trends are  identified  through individual research of doctorate students and through creative discussions between the students  and invited experts.  The DBA program allows to spot the trends that are only now emerging.  This approach  enables the participants  to use  high-end management technologies  in their  business practices in the future.

  • The DBA program  is primarily focused  on the contemporary  knowledge management technologies. Information transparency   in today’s world  results in  fast  dissemination of knowledge  and its  application in business processes. This undermines the competitive advantages  of organizations,  which  found  their strategies primarily on  the  use of  the newest explicit  knowledge.  IBS DBA program is  oriented  at the use of tacit knowledge,  which has become  a key success factor in the 21st century.  This enables DBA participants  to identify  the  true factors of competitiveness for their own  projects and businesses.  DBA graduates   have the ability of turning knowledge into capital.
