The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program is the first of its kind in New Jersey and serves the needs of professionals and academics looking to enhance their skills in applied research. This is a full-time, 60-credit program offered on weekends and evenings allowing students to complete the program in as little as two years. The DBA program is highly selective and complements the curriculum and structure of our existing Ph.D. program. However, unlike the traditional Ph.D. program, the DBA program is designed as a practitioner's doctoral degree and provides a foundation for implementing theory to real-world business issues.
This degree is designed for:
- Working professionals with extensive managerial and/or technical experience who want to take their career to the next level
- Academics who are interested in learning about and applying the latest theoretical concepts to economic and business problems
- Senior executives interested in reinventing themselves as professors or expert consultants
After earning their degree, graduates will be certified experts in their field and will increase their opportunities for growth within their industry or as career transitioners. Students in this program are required to have an MBA or equivalent degree with substantial work and extensive decision-making experience. Courses are held in-person on the Newark campus.
