After earning your DBA online, a whole new world of career opportunities will be open to you. Through a combination of classes, seminars, professional residencies, research papers and a final dissertation, you’ll study high-level business theories and management techniques and gain experience directly applying them in real business environments.
In the Doctor of Business Administration program, you’ll have the education and skills it takes to solve problems at the very highest level of a business. By completing your DBA online, students develop the capacity to work independently and more in 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 their areas of interest in the third year.
Students may choose from six areas of specialization or design their own specialized fields of study.
The Baker College Doctorate of Business Administration program is a 3.5-year program consisting of 60 credit hours (27 hours of doctoral core classes and 9 hours of doctoral specialty requirements). Our curriculum includes comprehensive and qualifying requirements, a professional residency and a research-based dissertation focused on a real problem facing today’s business leaders and managers.
My Baker DBA has helped me to impact the next generation of entrepreneurs. I have had unique opportunities to teach social entrepreneurship on the campuses of Yale, Stanford and most recently, Oxford.
Students who have 30 semester credits from an accredited doctoral program can apply for advanced standing in the Dissertation Only option.
Our quality-focused, market-driven and rigorous program curricula will establish and enhance core business knowledge and the ability to anticipate and react to societal changes, as well as provide students with technological proficiency, the ability to make ethical decisions and the communication skills that embody the professional acumen graduates need to make positive contributions to their chosen fields.
