About this course

Structured as a 90 quarter credit program, the DBA curriculum blends taught interdisciplinary content and research seminars with assessed scholarly and professional development activities, including attendance at two professional residencies. The program culminates in a research-based dissertation focused on a real problem facing today’s business leaders and managers. 

Over the course of the program, students develop the capacity to work independently and in more depth, moving from prescribed content in the first year of the program, to supervised scholarly activities in the second year, to independent research focused on his or her area of interest in the third year. Students may choose from six areas of specialization or design their own specialized field of study.
