DBA-Doctor of Business Administration
The DBA is basically equivalent to a “Doctor of Philosophy” (PhD), but the focus is more on the application of theoretical knowledge in practice. On the Anabin recognition platform, the DBA degree is assigned to equivalence class D1, which denotes the full doctoral degree. (Anabin is a database of the Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs, the acronym stands for “Recognition and Evaluation of Foreign Educational Qualifications”). DBA doctoral programmes are primarily aimed at working top executives with extensive management experience. The topic of the dissertation should preferably deal with a subject area from corporate practice.

Individualised study content
We adapt the study content to be completed to suit you.
Why should you have knowledge that you have already demonstrated at another university or as part of another degree programme tested again? This is the question we asked ourselves at HIBS. And we answer them in your interest: we know what you need to know. If you provide us with evidence that you have already successfully completed individual course modules (at HIBS or at another university), then you do not need to work on them again.
The HIBS - your university in your pocket
If you study at the Hibs, you always have your university in your pocket. Study when and where you want. And with all senses.
Our course instructors are available for you so that the exchange does not come too short! Exchange content and experiences or discuss problems and issues. This improves the transfer of what you have learned into practice – and increases your motivation.
In attendance events there is the opportunity for personal contact and exchange with fellow students, but also with their coaches and numerous personalities from the HIBS network.
Studying at the HIBS is not bound by formal requirements. We decide autonomously on access requirements and content. And we have decided that HIBS is basically open to anyone who has the intellectual ability and sufficient motivation to successfully complete their studies at HIBS. And we rely entirely on the individual intake interview.
The HIBS is open to people of all ages and backgrounds. We support the socially disadvantaged through our scholarship programme.
Tuition fees and funding
When you sign the training contract, you receive unlimited access to your virtual desk with all the materials you need for your studies. You then decide for yourself at what speed you want to progress your studies. There is no minimum and no maximum duration of study.
It is therefore basically not possible for us to divide the tuition fees into semester or monthly fees as other universities do. The tuition fees are generally due upon signing of the training contract.
However, if you are not in a position to raise this all at once, then we will talk about adequate financing, partial forbearances or payment by instalments. Just get in touch with us if you have any questions.
