In this recent article from Forbes, UCL's Global Business School for Health Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA Health) is featured as an exciting opportunity to gain a doctorate in Business.

UCL GBSH Director Professor Nora Colton is featured in this article, where she is quoted expressing, “This DBA Health is particularly needed, now more than ever before as the health sector is undergoing radical change to meet the demand for healthcare services.”

Professor Colton also asserts that there remains some confusion around a DBA, as some students may not be aware that it is delivered significantly differently to a standard PhD, but still allows students to gain a doctorate in business and develop their skills to drive forward a career to help ignite real change in the world.

Forbes journalist Matt Symonds summarises the specialised nature of a DBA degree as a programme "for those who want to contribute and have a real, positive impact on society – perhaps not so different in the end to the Doctors we see in our hospitals."
