Thomas Graf’s DBA Coaching

Does a DBA make sense?

Is a Doctor of Business Administration the best solution for you? Maybe a different program would be better. In my coaching, we weigh the DBA against alternative qualifications.

Is it the right time for an DBA?

You can do a DBA at nearly any point of time during your professional career. In my coaching, we assess the right timing for you.

What's the best program for you?

Making the best choice among 300 DBA programs is challenging. In my coaching, we will develop a target DBA profile that matches your goals and resources.

What about the recognition of the Dr.-title?

The grade of a professional Doctorate in Management or Business Administration is a D.B.A. or sometimes a Ph.D. Under which conditions can you hold the German Dr.-title?



You will gain a clear picture of your next career step – whether it is an DBA, another qualification or the decision to excel in your job.

You will generate your ideal DBA profile that matches your resources and goals. Based on this, you will start your search.

You will get an overview of the criteria that allow you to hold the German Dr.-title with a professional doctorate in management.
