To aid you in the development of your dissertation, which is the substantive collateral component of the DBA, Sabi provides a four-week Doctoral Development Plan course. It builds on the dissertation prospectus developed in the research methods course. The DDP deliverable is the first chapter of the dissertation, which is the architecture of the entire dissertation and, therefore, should be about 15 to 20 pages. The DDP’s deliverables will include a review of the template and the rubrics for each chapter of the dissertation. The DDP is intended to give students a rapid start into their dissertation. As part of the DDP the learner will develop a plan that will be used to complete the dissertation, including developing the literature review (Chapter 2), the methodology, including data collection and analyses (Chapter 3), the reporting and analysis of the findings (Chapter 4), and the conclusions and implications for further study (chapter 5).



Students with superior academic records may request the admission committee for allowing them to transfer their previous credits to the Sabi University. The granting of an accelerated study is wholly at the admission committee’s discretion.

To be eligible, students must provide:

  • Official transcript of their previous studies including all information about received credits
  • Their previous studies must be done in an accredited or state-recognized higher education institute

Students who believe that they meet the above requirements should inform the admission office immediately after submission of application. If students meet all of the above conditions, they should attend an interview with the program director or representative of the admission committee. Please notice that transfer of credit cannot be done from lower level to upper level – i.e. you cannot transfer your credits from Masters Studies to Doctoral Studies.
