Postgraduate: A global perspective vital to management
The programme, offered at the SEGi University College campus in Kota Damansara, is perfect for MBA holders with plenty of business management experience who wish to propel themselves further in the understanding and running of businesses. It has already gained accreditation from the Malaysian Qualification Agency.
The SEGi DBA stresses inter-disciplinary understanding and the application of knowledge, which is relevant for managing in a global perspective. Graduates from the programme are expected to make a key contribution to global business practices, so coursework relates to leadership, change, finance and process management, as well as research methodologies.
It is intended to allow highly experienced senior managers an opportunity to deepen their knowledge and skills to meet the higher intellectual and professional practice demands of their organisational role. Its aim is to facilitate the application of existing theory and knowledge to major work place issues.
A key element of the philosophy and approach centres on the development not only of intellectual knowledge and skills of the student, but also wider personal development. To this end continuous personal individual counselling, guidance and mentoring form an integral part of the study experience.
This is through in-depth psychological profiling and review, group mentoring, a personal development strategy linked to DBA teaching, work-based experience and professional development.
Courses in the DBA programme are offered in intensive mode, and the programme can be completed in a minimum period of three years.
