A DBA doctoral study is a formal manuscript written to address a gap in business practice, thus resolving a local business problem. Walden DBA doctoral studies consist of three sections (Section 1: Foundation of the Study, Section 2: the Project, Section 3: Application to Professional Practice and Implications for Change).
Access samples of published DBA doctoral studies through the Walden library website under Databases. You can also access the Office of Student Research Administration for additional information on the DBA doctoral study process.
