The KSU Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program is an innovative doctoral program designed to prepare highly experienced professionals for teaching and research positions at AACSB accredited business schools or for advanced research positions in consulting, government or industry. The KSU DBA program combines the rigor of a traditional doctoral program with intense classroom study allowing full immersion into state of the art academic research content and methods, along with a European style mentorship model supporting the student in conducting independent, original research.

We strongly encourage you to attend an information session before applying to the KSU DBA program. Material provided during these sessions as well as the ability to meet and interact with program faculty and leadership will enable you to make a more informed decision.
