Event details

You are cordially invited to our Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) event on Thursday 21st March 2019 from 16:00-19:00 in the Garden End, University of Southampton. Come and hear about the future of business thinking as our DBA students take on real world problems and put the evidence back into business thinking. The DBA is a practical and applied way of evidencing and validating how research can be used to solve real world problems that you experience in your businesses every day. DBA research addresses real world problems and is motivated by the challenges they pose. Within our own business contexts, when we have been doing the same job for any length of time, we can easily become trapped in a particular way of thinking. This event gives every business an opportunity to talk to people with deep industry experience who are exploring these ‘thinking traps’. Get involved and come along to our informal and FREE event where you can explore and possibly receive help in solving some of your own business problems. It’s a great place for you to network, learn and share ideas with other creative thinkers.
