Who It's For

The DBA is for working professionals who aspire to be leaders in their fields and who wish to deepen their knowledge in a specialized area of management to contribute effectively to their organizations and fields.  More specifically, the ideal candidate for this program will be an individual who has a meaningful work experience, sufficient management knowledge and skills evidenced by previous post-secondary education including a relevant master’s degree, and who can devote significant time per week to his/her studies. The DBA is equivalent to full-time study given the integration of work-based experience and classroom study facilitated by the blended learning model.  Academics who do not have a doctorate and who hold positions in Canadian and international universities and colleges can also benefit from this program as the doctorate is a recognized credential for advancement in those positions.
