Founded in 1993, The DBA program from Grenoble Ecole de Management is the most experienced DBA in Europe. It offers senior managers, independent consultants, and academics the opportunity to leverage their careers and/or to make a transition into academia. The program is for those seeking to link corporate experience to rigorous and relevant research. It connects the business and research communities to enact change and foster progress through original and publishable research work.

Our DBA approach leads to intellectual contributions, as demonstrated by our students and graduates’ outstanding publication records. As a triple-accredited business school (AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS), Grenoble Ecole de Management has designed a program that fits executives’ needs with the highest quality standards: we see the DBA program as a true research-based degree.

Global Cohort Options: France & USA

The program includes two or three on-campus Research Seminars (depending on location selection), live online Workshops & Seminars, qualifying deliverables and milestones, and a final dissertation. Join one of our strategic international cohorts while following the program from anywhere in the world:

  • DBA France: Paris - Grenoble - Online
  • DBA USA: Los Angeles - Paris - Grenoble - Online

Specialization in Year 3

During Year 3 of the DBA program, candidates participate in a specialization track. The specializations are not required to be aligned with the student's own research topic but are rather an opportunity to gain further research experience by producing and presenting academic-level work and learning about cutting-edge research. Tracks include:

  • Specialization in Sustainability
  • Specialization in Managing Technology and Innovation
  • Specialization in Managing and Leading People
