I am in my DBA program at Trident University Internationality and I always have struggled with writing.
The DBA Handbook is an essential resource that outlines the DBA program and the graduation requirements. Chapter 1 of the DBA Handbook provides an overview of the purpose of the doctoral study project (DSP), key differences between the DSP and the Dissertation, types of research designs used in the DSP, and the minimum requirements of the DSP. Please review Chapter 1: Introduction with particular attention to the key differences between the DSP and the Dissertation.
Next, please visit the DBA guide and review one of the published DSPs that is of interest to you and related to your potential research topic. You may access each study by copying and pasting its title into the Trident Library search bar on the Trident Portal page.
After reading the required background material and you're selected published DSP, write a 3- to 4-page paper (not counting the cover page and the page with references) on the following:
Using Chapter 1 of the DBA Handbook, select three minimum requirements needed to complete the doctoral studies project.
Describe and explain what each requirement is.
Identify and discuss how your selected published DSP study met each requirement of the DSP.
Discuss how you as a future researcher might complete a similar study using the minimum requirements you selected in your doctoral studies project.
