“As African economies and organizations evolve and business problems grow in complexity, new knowledge and practices must be generated by the new generation of business leaders. This requires more rigorous inquiry in the African context so that leaders are able to make evidence-based decisions. Many believe that German companies are well-managed and resilient because over 75% of German business executives hold professional doctorates. Our doctoral program blends Swiss excellence with local knowledge allowing you to develop deeper insights into real business problems in pursuit of new and relevant evidence-based solutions.”

“An executive doctoral degree program requires you to conduct research that is useful for practice by studying how theories are applicable in practice. A doctorate serves as a vehicle for self-managed development into a leading professional, taking forward an area of practice. By studying at this level, you prepare yourself to think critically about your field and face the challenges that will arise throughout your career.”

“Given the increasing dynamism and complexity in the African business context, many executives have high intellectual ambition to advance an area of practice in industry by pursuing a doctorate. You want to go beyond the learning of knowledge to a whole new level – creating and sharing new knowledge and practices. You want to change how companies operate, how you see yourself, and how the world sees you. NiBS doctoral program for executives gives you the opportunity to take your career and personal life to promising new heights”.
