Audencia Partners with Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences to offer DBA Programme

20 April 2023

Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences has signed a partnership with Audencia, to offer the Audencia DBA programme in the Netherlands and in France. The Doctorate of Business Administration is a three-year, part-time, professional doctorate in business administration awarded by Audencia Business School. The programme will start in November 2023.

The DBA has been specifically created for academically minded business professionals who are looking to combine their years of work experience with a rigorous academic programme leading to the Audencia Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) degree. In partnership with Wittenborg, students will follow the first year of study at Wittenborg’s Amsterdam location, while year 2 and 3 will be completed at Audencia’s Paris or Nantes campuses, and most of the Audencia courses are delivered online over the duration of the programme.

The partnership is expected to further Wittenborg’s development of its academic research profile, allowing its faculty to gain (further) experience in supervising at doctorate level, whilst also providing access to professional doctorate programmes for its faculty and professional staff members, as part of the continuous development described in Wittenborg’s Strategic Plan.
