Bryan College is a Doctorate Granting Institution

Doctorate Granting background

Bryan College is excited to announce that it has been approved by SACSCOC to become a doctorate granting institution!

This is a historic moment in the life of the College, reflective of much long-term planning and academic vision. This increase in academic level is a crucial recognition of Bryan’s educational scope and rigor.

Alongside this approval, the College recently announced the launch of its first doctoral program in the institution’s ninety-one year history. Coursework for the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program will commence in Fall 2022. The DBA is geared to provide experienced professionals and academics with advanced skills and credentials in business beyond the MBA.

President Douglas Mann commented on this significant moment in the life of College:

“This is an exciting new step for us. It opens up new opportunities in the future to continue to increase new programs that we offer to meet today’s demands of the marketplace expanding on our heritage of educating students to become servants of Christ to make a difference in today’s world.”

With this change in their degree-granting purview, Bryan College looks forward to the DBA’s first cohort in Fall 2022, as well as to future programmatic opportunities at the doctoral level.
