Doctorate in Business Administration


"The University of Atlanta’s Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program in Managerial Science has been designed for a diversified student body: experienced business professionals who wish to translate corporate experience into senior leadership options, be it as a member of the executive team within their current organization or as a top competitor in other settings; individuals at any stage of their career who, beyond their completed Master’s level studies in Business or Management, are inspired to soar higher, to explore, examine and critically evaluate theories, applications, concepts, processes and conventions in new, creative ways; those who, already part of the world of higher education or headed in such direction, seek an appointment or professional advancement that the DBA is apt to facilitate; and those who, focused less on specific objectives, as conventionally defined, and more on the process of, and quest for, further growth and development, seek the learning experience that such a program promises to provide.
