Admission and Eligibility  
Unlike other Doctoral Programs, the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program of UBDP vastly relies on empiricism by enrolling only accomplished professionals like Entrepreneurs, CEO’s, CFO’s, Ministers, Diplomats, Top Bureaucrats, Project Directors, etc. In other words, the DBA program of UBDP can be undertaken only with splendid Academic and Professional track record which ensure highest standard and acceptability for its accreditation. Accordingly, we set the following strict eligibility criteria for 3 years DBA as well as integrated DBA of 4 years;

The proponent student should posses a minimum of 5 years professional experience at the top Management level either in Private/Public sector or at any project level.


Hold a Masters degree in similar stream either in Economics, Business Management, Accounts or equivalent qualification from accredited institutions.


Those who hold accredited Bachelors or Masters Degree in other disciplines will have to undergo integrated DBA of 4 years span.

The application of each student requesting for DBA enrolment must clearly explain the applicant's objectives for seeking a Doctorate of Philosophy in Business Administration sciences including intellectual curiosity, interest in pursuing academic research, and relevance of their academic background.

It should also contain a detailed description about the Management level activities and Professional background of the candidate to screen the exposure and their capability to successfully undertake the applied research process in Business Management.

Applicants from countries or universities where English is not an official educational language should provide a TOEFL minimum score of 79 (internet-based) / 213 (computer-based) / 550 (paper-based) or an equivalent result of other recognized English language tests.

Those applications duly complete in all respect will be forwarded to UBDP directly or to Group Corporate Office or at any Main Training Campus. On evaluation of the same by the Academic committee of the UBDP, the same will be forwarded to the Parent University for enrollment.
