    Individual Study Plan Practitioner Based Project/Dissertation:

    The first step for scholars is to draft their preliminary research proposal. This proposal can be an 8-10 page document that consists of essential factors of the DBA program. We have set up a pre-defined template to speed up the process of completion. You are advised to have the initial research proposal ready within the first month of enrollment and submit it. Your supervisor or Research faculty will provide feedback on the same. The template for your preliminary research proposal can be found here.

    One can consider the following points while selecting his/her topic for the research project.
    • A single-subject study that evaluates a new or innovative intervention, business venture, etc.
    • An Action Research or Participatory Action Research project | A program evaluation
    • A field study that examines theoretical predictions;
    • A survey study examining opinions, attitudes, or practices within a field or discipline;
    • A business process improvement.

    These examples illustrate that all project topics require extensive knowledge of the literature about specific subject areas and the sophistication of how a project is developed and presented. Conducting these projects provides students with experiences that create expertise in their focused areas and prepare them to be effective practitioner-scholars. To achieve this goal, it is recommended that students pursue a topic where they already have extensive practical experience.
