Why the JU DBA?

AACSBAACSB Accreditation

The Davis DBA degree is one of an elite group of AACSB accredited DBA programs.  Based on the three pillars of Leadership, Globalization, and Business Analytics, the doctoral program for executives at JU takes business intelligence and the art of “informed intuition” to a new level.  The DBA curriculum builds on the skills professionals have mastered, while heightening their ability to be agile and fluid as a manager.  The DBA prepares candidates to scope the best paths for discovery, innovation, and quantitative analysis of opportunities and international challenges.  There are three phases to the DBA program.  In the first phase, students complete the “core” coursework during the first two years.  The second phase is the comprehensive  exam and oral presentation of dissertation proposal.  In the final phase, the candidates focus on their dissertation by dedicating their third year to doctoral level research and writing in a business area of their choice.​
