DBA Program Overview

The Dallas DBA Advantage

DBA Classroom, University of Dallas

The Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business was established on the foundation that business education should be practitioner-oriented while remaining committed to rigorous academic research.

As scholar-practitioners, every member of our faculty has extensive corporate experience and many of us continue to do an extensive amount of consulting with prominent local, regional, national and international organizations. In addition, our research can be found among the top journals in our disciplines.

The University of Dallas DBA is a doctoral program for experienced managers and academics who want to further enhance their business knowledge beyond a MBA or graduate degree. Our DBA program is designed to provide students the chance to bring a rigorous approach to solving existing managerial and organizational problems. The UD DBA provides an opportunity to focus on finding solutions to the challenges of the contemporary workplace, under the close guidance of scholar-practitioners.
