Welcome to the School of Professional Studies. The modern business operates in a globalized workplace that is highly complex and prone to disruptive change. To be an effective leader, one must make sense of the complexity and help their organizations solve truly challenging problems. The Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) combines practice-based learning and research that is beneficial for the success of today’s professionals. It will give the student an immediate integration of knowledge and critical thinking skills to that can impact performance.

The D.B.A. is your ticket to a host of exciting opportunities that include professional, consulting and academic positions. The program is supported by experienced full-time and part-time faculty with practitioner experience and academic expertise in all functional areas of business. We give you three key competitive advantages: 1) the presentation and application of core, functional areas of business that are both academically rigorous and practically relevant for aspiring leaders in the 21st century; 2) convenience for working professionals that require the flexibility to attend class in-person at a variety of locations and/or online; and 3) the ability to complete an entire graduate business degree plan in only five semesters.

I look forward to meeting and speaking with you.
