The University of Wollongong in Dubai offers two postgraduate research degrees at doctoral level. Both the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programs are research-based courses that include a period of training in research methods followed by a substantial, in-depth research project.

The PhD and DBA are of equivalent academic standard and rigour, but differ in the nature of their outcome. Graduates of the PhD will generally be looking for an academic career in a University or College as a ‘professional researcher’.  Graduates of the DBA will generally be looking to apply their research skills and findings to improve the performance of their current workplace and so become a ‘researching professional’.
