special note:  we have had to put this DBA programme on hold as the university with which we had hoped to offer the programme has not been able to validate it for off-campus delivery.  The information contained on this website relates to the model that we used to offer until 1999, and which we hope to replicate at the earliest opportunity.  As far as we know, no university offers a DBA in Marketing, and if that is the programme you feel you wish to study, then please fill in the form and we will keep you informed of progress.
