A master's degree in a business-related field is preferred; however, applicants holding an undergraduate degree in a business area and a master's degree in a non-related area will be accepted. Applicants must have graduated from a regionally-accredited or a nationally accredited institution of higher education or an appropriately certified foreign institution approved and documented by director of DBA program. Students may be accepted into the Online Doctor of Business Administration Degree program before completing a master's degree but must have completed the degree before beginning doctorate in business administration degree program coursework.
All applications for admission to the online doctoral degree in business administration must be submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office.
