Course Description

The DBA degree is created for discerning individuals who have reached a phase in their lives where personal fulfillment is their priority. This is the time where we reevaluate our life's critical issues that concern family and career and the future we desire. Business and global issues and the philosophy of living are given fresh perspectives in this personal inquiry.

More than just another academic program or a course for practicing professionals, the DBA is a serious conversation about critical issues that revolve around our lives and the way we shape our destiny. We thus adopt an adventurous learning experience that is experiential and exploratory: Recognizing that our world is chaotic and that most challenges in decision making are what we categorize as "wicked problems", a totally new paradigmic framework must be used. Our shared learning thus uses a combination of philosophical wondering, literature based and appreciative learning, Design and Theory U techniques, PBL, presencing and scenario analysis. It is multi disciplinary and underpinned by experimental approaches.

The DBA is about personal growth and leadership transformation—a powerful statement about personal significance. The Academic Program Leader is Datuk Dr Paul Chan who is a social entrepreneur and a pioneer in private tertiary education. He leads a team of thought leaders and practitioners who come from a wide spectrum of disciplines and life's experiences.
