Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) - Online (hybrid)

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program is geared to provide experienced professionals and academics with advanced skills and credentials in business beyond the MBA.

The Bryan College Doctor of Business Administration will include three unique elements in its 60 credit hour program. The first element is a hybrid delivery model. Most of the program can be done conveniently through online content delivery, however, there is an on-campus residency once a year as well. The second aspect is that the program is delivered as a cohort experience, with students going through the doctoral educational process as a group with those who have enrolled at the same time. The inclusion of a dissertation is the third crucial component of this new program. Students’ dissertation progress is integrated throughout the three-year program, foregrounding research and significant contributions to the field of Business.

Applications for the first cohort are being accepted until May 1st.
