Building on the success of previous events, the 2018 DBA Symposium will be run in collaboration between the British Academy of Management and the Chartered Association of Business Schools.

The focus of this year’s symposium will be on impact - 'Developing, Capturing and Using the Impact of DBA Research'. Impact is of increasing importance in the academic environment and this symposium will shine a light on impact from different perspectives including outside the academic environment. It will feature a high profile keynote speaker and a panel discussion with an opportunity to discuss the major issues around impact. As ever, delegates will find the day a great opportunity to meet with peers and discuss issues relating to the delivery of the DBA programme.

As in previous years, this symposium is designed to include parallel programmes for faculty involved in managing and teaching DBA programmes and for DBA students.

For Faculty staff involved in DBAs/Executive Doctorates: A programme for those involved in managing, teaching and assessing DBA/Executive Doctorates in business and management. The aim is to provide a forum for sharing experiences and good practice in order to build a sustainable network within BAM and Chartered ABS. Speakers will include faculty with extensive experience of DBA/Executive Doctorate provision, as well as alumni who have successfully graduated from programmes and are now leveraging the personal, professional and business benefits of their doctorate.

For DBA/Executive Doctorate Students:  A parallel programme will be run for DBA students to discuss their doctoral research in a supportive setting. One of the best ways to progress your research is to present and receive feedback on your research and ideas to date. DBA/Executive Doctorate students are therefore invited to submit a structured summary of their work in no more than 1,000 words by 6 April 2018. Submissions are welcome from students in all stages of their doctorates.

Submission guidelines are available here.
