Doctoral Degrees

A DBA (Doctor of business administration) is the equivalent of a PhD in Business Administration. While a PhD tends to be more of a theoretical or scholarly research based program, the DBA is more of an applied research based program. Many DBA candidates are executives who wish to pursue a higher degree while continuing to work full time. Because the DBA focuses on applied research, many students are able to directly apply what they learn to current business issues. Both the PhD and the DBA are terminal degrees.
