Bryan's Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) Program Starts Fall of 2022

Bryan College announces the launch of its first doctoral program in the institution’s 91-year history.

Bryan will begin offering a new Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program in the Fall of 2022. 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.

Dr. Adina Scruggs, Director of the DBA program, said, “It has been a dream of mine to bring doctoral degrees to my alma mater. I am extremely excited and can’t stop smiling. I am thrilled to help prepare the next generation of those interested in academic careers and lifelong learners. This degree will give our region’s master’s level graduates a unique opportunity to continue, differentiate and enhance their professional development.”

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,” Scruggs said.

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.
