Benefits of this Path

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. Benefits of this program include:

  • 8-week online accelerated classes
    (The DBA program can be completed in as little as 3 years.*)
  • 60 credit hours to graduate
  • Online/hybrid (limited residency; one onsite class per year)
  • $600 per credit hour
  •  Christian Worldview
  • Applications accepted until May 1st

*Not all students will finish their degree in 3 years. We recommend consulting with your advisor at least once per semester to ensure you are on track for graduation.
