IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Note: The DBA degree is not an equivalent to a Russian doctoral or PhD degree in the terms of the Russian law on Education. It is also not equivalent to the PhD degree in most of the countries of the European Union and the USA. A DBA is a post-graduate course.

A DBA is the highest degree in business (MSc/MBA → DBA). There is a parallel system of degrees in business that is not equal to the system of academic degrees (MSc → PhD). These two systems shouldn’t be confused.

A DBA is useful for those who are looking for a career in business, while a PhD is valuable for those who are looking for an academic career (working and teaching at universities, for example). However, the DBA degree is valuable for those who want to teach at MBA programs, for instance.


It is also important to understand that when one perceives to get an DBA degree in another country then their own country, they must keep in mind a question of recognition / nostrification of foreign degrees / diplomas by local authorities if necessary. While this question is irrelevant in most cases to make a career in the corporate world, one can need to obtain recognition / nostrification if they want to work in public / civil service or academic world or continue the academic thread of education, like pursuing a PhD degree, for example. EMAS, as well as other educational institutions in the world, can not guarantee the recognition / nostrification of its diplomas outside of its country (Russia) and is not responsible for that.
