Doctor of Business Administration
The Doctor of Business Administration at University of the Cumberlands is designed to be an applied doctorate for working professionals who are driven to lead and innovate. The DBA enables students to develop advanced levels of competency in conducting applied research and in the comprehension of theoretical and applied literature in the discipline.
This program has been designed for candidates who are already working in the areas of a business profession. These candidates cannot attend classes in a “traditional setting” on campus because their schedules have to accommodate participants’ or clients’ busy schedules, so their workday may span twelve hours or more. Recent MBA graduates will also be attracted to this program to make themselves more knowledgeable and marketable to future employers. With the planned course structure and rotation, a full-time student earning 24 credits per academic year may complete the program easily in three years, while a half-time student completing 12 credits per academic year may complete the program in five years.
