What’s the difference between a Ph.D. and the DBA?

The Ph.D. program prepares students for a career in a research-intensive university, with a focus on academic and theoretical research. The Ph.D. degree does not have a set time for completion, but typically students complete the degree in 5 to 6 years. The DBA program is intended for business leaders who are interested in research with a passion for academic pursuits, and for academics who do not have a doctoral degree. The DBA is a cohort program and is designed to be completed in two years.

"Rutgers had taken Executive adult learning to an enlightenment level. The program was very well structured and does not overload you with academic information. Every course essence was achieved via self-realization by professional professors leading us with intriguing scenarios and discussions. Allowing us time to digest concepts, and reapplying on real time events happening around the world."
