The CalSouthern Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree is designed to provide working professionals the advanced business knowledge and practical skills required of senior leadership in today’s complex, globalized and technologically driven business world. Students often enroll in the DBA program to gain an edge over those holding an MBA, prepare themselves for a leadership position in their current organization, to make a career change or to start a business of their own. While the curriculum provides a broad-based business education at the highest academic level, a doctoral project allows students to dive deeply into a topic of their choosing, establishing themselves as an expert in a specialty that they are passionate about.
