Whereas a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is purely research-focused, underpinned in philosophy, examining problem areas in that context and attempts to provide answers to paradigmatic questions, the DBA adds the element of applicability and practicality into the research. Such reflection, enables the researcher to consider past experiences within the realm of their professional career, building upon achievements and mistakes made in the past, ensuring a practical learning experience.  Hence, within the DBA program, learning methods such as ‘Experiential Learning’ and in some cases ‘Craft-Based Learning’, is used, ensuring that the participants remain attached to the topic within their line of business.

A Doctorate in Business Administration is highly recommended for ambitious businesspeople with benefits such as knowledge upgrade, the possibility of a career change, as well as further focus and differentiation in the advancement in one’s current career. The DBA also lends benefits to the organization at which the participant is active, by gaining the necessary tools and knowledge in solving business problems, contributing to the further development of the organization via advanced talent management as an example.
