There are great career advantages for business professional in pursuing a combined DBA and PhD in Management. These advantages rest primarily upon the professional strengths they attain as a graduate, in both knowledge and skills, which provide a real competitive advantage, and also the improved capacity for graduates to make truly meaningful contributions to the field of management, as their career progresses.

The DBA (Doctor of Business Administration) program is designed to support experienced business professionals who have already achieved a Master’s degree or equivalent, and would like to empower their career with an additional advanced degree in Business Administration. The DBA program is designed for experienced business professionals who want to translate their industry expertise into leadership positions as consultants or as executives within their organizations. The DBA is developed with insights from experienced world-class faculty members and leading business practitioners. The program emphasizes advanced decision-making and leadership skills, in-depth knowledge of both theory and applied research, and the ability to manage positive social and organizational change.

The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) in Management program is designed for transitioning business practitioners and is focused on advancing participants at the theoretical and research side, expanding their capabilities as business professionals to the greatest extent possible. The biggest benefit of obtaining the PhD in Management, in addition to the DBA, is the advantage professionals will have over many others by having completed that last step in earning a true doctoral degree.

According to a survey by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median average salary of a CEO was greater than $140,000 (USD). There is quite a lot of competition among professionals for these high-paying jobs. Professionals with DBA degrees are quite common in this, the 21st Century, and having a true doctoral degree (PhD) will give a definite advantage over others seeking top positions. As business professionals further their education at the doctoral level, a combined DBA and PhD in Management will aid in helping these business leaders stand out among other business professionals, taking their careers to newer and greater heights of achievement. The combines degree program is a gold-level achievement, whereas, the DBA or PhD alone is but a silver-level accomplishment.
