Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA)

When you have a doctorate in business degree, you are the one responsible for management, economics and other related areas with practical application and theory. The degree is also known as a DBA. The degree is a research and application degree beyond the masters (MBA) degree level. These graduates typically go on to teach in colleges, as well as conduct research for universities and offering tactics to companies to compete better. This will offer several different career paths that can be taken and many opportunities for career choices. Some will go into roles to head companies and be responsible for the managing and running of them, while others will act as a consultant to give owners an edge in creating products and maintaining the level of consumer profits for them. You can get a general degree or specialize in an area where you would write a dissertation or be published in a professional journal on theory or practice to obtain the doctorate.
