Assumption University Graduate School of Management in Thailand (ABAC) and the Business Science Institute (BSI) Luxembourg, are proud to launch an Executive Doctorate of Business Administration (EDBA) in Bangkok.
The EDBA is the ultimate degree in the field of Business Administration, with only a very small percentage of business professionals ever achieving this level of success. It is a specialist professional qualification that unites professional practice in business and industry with academic knowledge. DBA professionals are an elite group, recognized as leaders of their own organization, and attractive to those others who seek to appoint at the highest level of management. The EDBA is a doctor degree lasting 3 years with an international course of study that creates considerable business value. Managers conduct research that focuses on their companies and problems. Businesses thus benefit from research led by Managers who are themselves shaped under the academic perspective and quality control of the supervising international faculty. The EDBA program fits well to the managers’needs as it is organized in 5 intensive 3 days seminars in Bangkok (first year), an international research week in Luxembourg and in the form of supervised distance learning for writing the DBA thesis (second and third year). It is thus entirely compatible with professional activity.
On Tuesday 18 September 2018, we are hosting Professor Dr. Lars Meyer-Waarden from the BSI for an Information Session on our brand new Executive Doctorate of Business Administration Degree at the ABAC ZEN City Campus, at 6pm to 7pm ! Please join us to ask all your questions about the EDBA.

The Business Science Institute Executive DBA program was created in response to the demands and needs of experienced executives that wish to take a step back from their managerial practices to conduct research, create knowledge, to write and defend an Executive DBA thesis.
This collection, composed of three series, presents not only the work of the Business Science Institute professors, but also the work of Business Science Institute doctors and doctoral students.
Certain publications are now available in English!
"How to successfully complete your DBA?" by Professor Michel Kalika
"Discovering new theories" by Professor Isabelle Walsh
This book entitled "How to successfully complete your DBA?", written by Business Science Institute President Michel Kalika aims to answer the questions of managers who wish to gain perspective, defend and publish a thesis grounded in their managerial experience and create knowledge.
What is a DBA? What are the differences between a DBA and a PhD? How to prepare a DBA in three years? Should you choose a face-to-face or distance learning DBA? How to choose your thesis supervisor? How to start your DBA? What methodology (ies) to choose for your DBA? What plan to adopt for the DBA thesis? And finally: How to enhance your DBA?
The author provides clear and pragmatic answers to all these questions on the basis of his experience in managing DBA programs and he takes the reader through a three steps plan:
1. Choosing a DBA
2. Choosing a thesis theme
3. Managing your DBA
Press Release - March 24th 2017
The Business Science Institute, which organizes an international DBA with more than 100 doctoral students, has summarized the motivations of managers applying to this doctoral program. Based on the qualitative analysis of admission interviews, two main motivators have appeared: the private and the professional.
In the private sphere, the candidates are looking for satisfaction in three areas: the pleasure of engaging in a process of reflection, the pride of obtaining the title of doctor, and finally the desire to have their work published.
Professionally, managers first seek to differentiate themselves in an environment where the MBA has become the norm. Others also see the DBA as an opportunity for professional development, especially in large international organizations. Finally, for those engaged in consulting, the DBA is a tool of legitimacy.
Motivations differ according to candidates’ profiles. For younger candidates, professional motivations dominate, while private considerations take precedence for senior managers.
The following table (translated from French) provides the managers’ quotes, illustrating what they are looking for in a DBA.
