My Coaching Approach

Four essential questions will clarify your doubts:


Is an DBA the best choice?

Specialized Masters, MBAs, professional doctorates, executive education: We have tons of qualification opportunities and the DBA is not necessarily the best option for you. In my coaching, we find out what you need for your next step.


Is it the right time?

DBA programs can be studied at any time in your professional career – part-time mostly. In my coaching, we assess the right timing for you.


Which program and school?

With more than 300 professional Doctorates in Business Administration worldwide, finding the right one is a challenge. In my coaching, we analyze “the right one” for you and develop a target DBA profile for your search.


The German Dr.-title

In my coaching you will learn about the criteria when you can hold the German Dr-title with your  DBA.


Your ideal DBA is the DBA that matches your goals and resources. Maybe you don’t need  a Network Benefit – so why pay for it? Maybe you need a Reputation Benefit in a specific industry but not globally. In my coaching, we develop your ideal DBA profile that you can use as a roadmap for your search.
