Doctor of Business Administration

Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.)

Taught by dedicated, full-time faculty with both industrial and research experience, students have opportunities to connect with faculty in and out of the classroom. Students choose a core faculty member as their research chair for the development of their dissertation.

Saint Mary’s rich learning environment encourages collaboration and in-depth conversations with your peers and you’ll have the opportunity to explore your passions through research and reflection alongside highly regarded scholar-practitioners.

Regardless of your background—business, government, nonprofit, military, higher education, or something else—you’ll find significant value in the breadth of perspectives represented and the skills that you build that can be immediately applied to your workplace. When you graduate with a doctorate from Saint Mary’s you’ll feel well-prepared to advance in your field and use your expertise to positively impact organizational goals.

All Saint Mary’s doctoral candidates in Business Administration enter with a master’s degree and are encouraged to research their interests as they align with one of two specialization tracks: Management and Strategy or Business Economics and Finance. Each specialization track offers unique courses and degree requirements.
