    The first stage contains coursework that includes the study of core disciplines from which management research draws to provide students with a variety of theoretical backgrounds and help them develop their research interests. During this stage, students will also take methodological courses to build up their quantitative and analytical skills, including a full range of methodologies: field research, case studies, simulations and experimental research.

    In the second stage of the DBA programme, students are expected to work in their Dissertation with an exhaustive supervision of the Advisor. Detailed guidelines regarding this process are provided by the UNILUS Postgraduate Handbook. The DBA calendar also provides specific dates for each of these components.
