Challenging, flexible and global – The SP Jain DBA is research in action.

SP Jain’s Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) is a 3-year doctoral program designed to meet the needs of high-achieving professionals who wish to enhance their business education through original research. The program includes topics specifically assigned to build your research skills and competencies in advanced areas of management and helps you develop the business expertise and technological prowess you need to advance your career.

The program builds on the business acumen of previously undertaken graduate studies, using global intelligence as a tool to solve business problems. It inspires you to develop new perspectives and approach business in an innovative way; it offers you the opportunity to study a real business issue in depth and immediately apply that knowledge in your working life, directly improving commercial outcomes within your organisation and beyond.

You can complete the program in three years full-time, or part-time in an equivalent period, and study online or at our campus in Sydney. The program offers all the academic rigour of a traditional PhD but is largely tailored to corporate executives and researchers who want a qualification that is practical and relevant to the organisation they work for.

Dr-Sai-Hrushikesh-Reddy-Yadam

Dr Sai Hrushikesh Reddy Yadam

(DBA Class of 2021)
General Manager, Unifeeder (DP World Group)
UAE

“I earned 5 promotions in 3.5 years.

  • 2017-2018: I worked as a Deputy Manager (Strategy) and got promoted as a Manager (Strategy) in a shipping and logistics company in Mumbai.
  • March 2018: I started my DBA journey to seek professional guidance and improve my skills.
  • April 2018: I got promoted as a Senior Manager in the shipping and logistics company in Mumbai.
  • September 2018: Professor Seetharaman taught us many theories and techniques as part of our course work. One particular concept, “TOWS Matrix”, changed my thought process and was a turning point in my life. I used this concept to develop a 5-year plan that included personal and professional goals and designed a personal balanced scorecard.
  • July 2019: I earned a double promotion as Deputy General Manager (BPM, India-Sri Lanka-Maldives + Projects Head, India + eCommerce, MEI Region countries) at a French shipping line.
  • January 2021: I got promoted as a General Manager (Integration Office – Scope Middle East, Indian sub-continent, East and the Far East) at Dubai’s largest shipping and logistics company.

The DBA program helped me develop advanced problem-solving skills, adopt a clean and structured planning approach, increase my credibility and opportunities, and continuously improve my soft skills.”

DR RAMMOHAN SUNDARAM

(DBA Class of 2021)
Country Head & Managing Partner
Integrated Media at DDB Mudra Group
India

I am currently the Country Head & Managing Partner – Integrated Media at DDB Mudra Group. I got promoted in January 2021 during the research process of the doctoral program. I have been informed that once I’m awarded the degree, I can expect an increment of at least 30%, which is significantly higher than my industry peers. This is largely attributed to the strategic skills I garnered during my study.

DR MARKO SELAKOVIĆ

(DBA Class of 2021)
Director – Institutional Development and Student Recruitment

DBA enabled me to shift my career towards teaching and research. It enhanced my management skills, so I am able to go more analytically into different aspects and issues, and that helps me a lot in everyday business and operations.
