Message from the Director

The decision to pursue a doctorate is an important one. Equally as important is where you decide to earn your degree. The Goldey-Beacom College Doctor of Administration (DBA) Program has a unique approach. We prepare you to discover and solve practical problems that your organization is facing on a daily basis. We have created partnerships with local, regional, and international businesses to come into our classrooms and share their business problems. As a student, you will solve real business problems through coursework. Our rigorous curriculum is ever-evolving, with four courses on current topics in business research; this allows us to create courses that are extremely relevant to the contemporary business environment on a year-to-year basis. Our program has been created from the ground up for the business practitioner who desires a deeper dive into data analytics and business research.

Whether your desire is to be a consultant, start a business venture, teach in higher education, or simply hone and improve your skills, a DBA can help you on your path. We hope you will give us a look and contact us to have a discussion. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
