How a DBA Can Advance Your Career

DBA graduates have acquired skills that can boost their career trajectory by equipping them for senior leadership roles. Since DBA programs usually require learners to conduct practical research, DBA graduates have strong portfolios that give them a competitive edge when searching for new jobs or opportunities. They can show tangible results of their work.

In addition, they are well versed in current business practice and theory. This means they can bring numerous ideas and innovations to companies and businesses looking to reconsider and modernize their business plans.

What to Expect in a DBA Program

DBA students combine research and theory with practical experience. The research they do may have an immediate impact on their work or businesses. A DBA is a research degree, so course material will revolve around preparing learners to write a dissertation. Researching, writing and revising are essential to successful program completion. The dissertations written at the end of a DBA program focus on solutions to complex organizational problems. Usually, DBA students conduct research that is immediately applicable to their line of work; however, some conduct research in fields they would like to move into.
