Dean of the Faculty of Management William Holmes and President Philip Steenkamp were interviewed by the Victoria Times Colonist about Royal Roads University’s new Doctor of Business Administration program.

Here is an excerpt from the story:

“The program marries all the academic rigour and research within a PhD to look at an applied business issue or problem,” Holmes said…. [He] said the program will be one of only four like it in Canada.


Philip Steenkamp, president of Royal Roads University, said it’s expected the new program will appeal to senior-level executives who want to go beyond theory.

“Candidates will actually get a chance to create the tools they need to apply to issues they face in the workplace,” he said.
