Nelson Granados Writes About the Value of a DBA in Poets & Quants

Business executives are coveting leaders with institutional knowledge and are trained in analyzing data to generate conclusions that can help with decision-making, writes Nelson Granado for Poets & Quants. Granados, professor of information systems technology management at Graziadio, details how he believes that this gap in specialized expertise can be filled by professionals with an executive doctorate in business, also known as Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA). 

Granados writes that a “DBA degree helps aspiring and current executives stand out from the crowd: DBAs are the highest level of qualification in management education and DBA holders represent only 2% of those who hold postgraduate business degrees."

Granados adds that while DBA programs are a commitment, they take less time than a PhD program and a candidate doesn’t have to leave their respective industry to complete the degree.
