The Doctorate in Public Leadership (DPL) degree provides an opportunity to combine a doctoral thesis of some 60,000 words with the coursework component of the Master of Public Leadership and Policy (8633) or an equivalent programs, such as the Master of Business (8388) and the Master of Public Policy and Governance (8259). The degree consists of one-third coursework (equivalent to one-year full-time study) and two-thirds research (equivalent to two-years full-time study) which may be in an area encountered by the student while undertaking coursework.

The 2-year research component of the DPL consists of an independent supervised study, with a focus on either in-depth investigation and research of a particular professional issue or set of issues (applied practice-based empirical research) or conceptual research about a particular policy area that builds original policy and governance knowledge.
