DBA and PhDs. – Equal but Different
The Doctorate of Business administration or DBA is an executive-level program designed for working professionals with extensive managerial experience as well as a master’s degree, who are looking to advance further in their career. DBA program has both the rigor and relevance as it contributes to theory, practice and research in business and management.

The PhD program is targeted towards those interested in pursuing research-focused careers in academia.
