Why does the Business Science Institute EDBA last three/four years?

First of all, a working manager cannot reasonably produce a high-quality thesis in less than three years.

We have been observing our PhD-managers since 2013, and we can confirm on the basis of our students' experience that a real and credible DBA thesis is not produced in less than three years. A two-year DBA programme is therefore not a serious proposition.

Secondly, it should be noted that the Bologna 3-5-8 process, which concerns European countries, stipulates 3 years for the Bachelor's degree, 2 years for the Master's degree and 3/4 years for the full-time Doctorate. For practising managers, AMBA & EQUAL consider that a DBA for should last 4 years.
