Florida Tech Launches Doctor of Business Administration Degree at Southern Maryland

Three-Year Program Designed to Propel
Business Leaders to New Successes

MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Institute of Technology is now offering a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree at the Southern Maryland Education Center in California, Maryland.

Florida Tech’s DBA is a three-year cohort program designed for next-level business leaders looking to enhance their skills through extensive case-study analysis. Its curriculum is focused on research, strategic management, entrepreneurship and critical thinking for decision-makers.

The DBA is designed for working professionals. Classes meet on a Friday and Saturday once per month for a total of four two-day sessions per semester. After two years, DBA students spend their third and final year completing a dissertation based on original quantitative and/or qualitative research.

Florida Tech’s DBA first launched two years ago at the Florida Tech off-site location in Huntsville, Alabama. The university’s main campus welcomed the program last year.

Common career paths for DBA recipients are senior managerial consultants, chief executive officers, operations managers, college professors and business training professionals.

“By challenging already successful business leaders to take their skills to the next level, our DBA program has the potential to be a real game-changer,” said Emily M. Vogt, the DBA program chair and an assistant professor in Florida Tech’s Nathan Bisk College of Business in Melbourne.
