Jones College of Business

The DBA program is the highest academic degree for business professionals who seek to advance in management, executive, and consulting careers in public and private organizations. Graduates are expected to master the tools and skills needed to succeed in these roles, which are projected to have above average growth.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects an average job growth rate of 8% for management occupations and 14% for consultants through 2024.

Critical thinking, evidence-based decision making, and leadership development are some of the key areas of focus for students. Through the discussion and analysis of contemporary case studies, students are given the opportunity to build off of their master’s level learning in a challenging and collaborative environment.

The program culminates in an applied doctoral study project which allows students to apply theories learned in coursework to an issue they may face in the workplace.

The faculty in the DBA program, all of whom were actively involved in its development, have extensive corporate and academic experience. These instructors include Dr. Indira Guzman, Dr. Stefan Hanson, Dr. Bruce Gillies, and Dr. Randall Fandrich.
