Program Description

Doctor of Business Administration

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) at Royal Roads University is a research-oriented doctoral degree designed primarily for working professionals who aspire to make an impact in their fields of practice, industries or communities.

Unique to British Columbia and Canada, our hybrid program integrates the strength of a professional doctorate with the research emphasis and rigor of a traditional Ph.D., preparing you for career paths within and beyond academia. Delivered in a blended format made up of short intensive residencies and cohort-based distance learning, the design of the DBA program allows you to gain a doctoral degree without putting your career on hold.

The DBA program is designed to respond to the changing landscape of doctoral education that features more focused practice-based research. You'll engage in your passion, tackle an important real-life problem, and gain the knowledge and confidence to lead in an organization, industry, or community. Learn more...
