High level research

The D.B.A. is an advanced degree available to holders of a professional or research master's degree. For the entire duration of the course, regular supervision by a thesis director is offered to each young research. At first, it is used to make sure that all acquire adequate writing and research methodologies for the redaction of their thesis and then as a source of feedback and support. It is complemented by seminars specifically designed to build upon the researcher's knowledge in his or her field of expertise. Following three years of intense work and supervision, the PhD candidate is expected to produce a 300 pages thesis reflecting current academic practice. The DBA is awarded upon successful defence of the thesis in front of a jury.
