Post-DBA Programme


In view of the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, the programme has been temporarily postponed and restructured.
It will now begin in an online format in September 2021 and finish face to face in Paris in May 2022.

Purpose of the programme

The French Foundation for Management Education (FNEGE) and Business Science Institute both have recognised expertise in international DBA programme provision and exceptional networks of professors with a wide experience of publishing in peer-reviewed academic journals (FNEGE ranked) as well as professional journals and magazines. The purpose of the partnership between those two institutions is to give an answer to the emerging international demand of Doctors who want to take their work a step further and publish in academic journals. The aim of this joint initiative is also to make the impact of DBA programmes on managerial practices better known and to help DBA managers continue developing their thinking about business and management practice. This Post-DBA programme is unique in the international higher education landscape.

Using their thesis, previous research and collected data as a foundation, the aim of this one-year Post-DBA programme is to provide an opportunity for doctoral graduates to challenge and revisit their knowledge and understanding of key academic management topics. This updating process will take the form of writing an academic article. The students will be able to work on their research and subsequent article under the supervision of a university-affiliated professor for one year.

The Post-DBA qualification will be awarded to participants upon the submission of an academic article to a ranked journal.

The Faculty

The team of professors working with FNEGE and Business Science Institute on the programme have a wide and confirmed experience of publishing in international ranked journals (FNEGE ranked), and of sharing knowledge with fellow academics as well as practitioners. They currently are or have been: editors, members of scientific committees and review panels, or of prestigious journals in the field of business and management.
