Program Objective

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree program is designed to enhance the capabilities of experienced professionals to enable them to meet the dynamic needs of modern businesses and organizations in the national and international environment, and to produce graduates who can contribute to the expansion of knowledge and awareness of contemporary strategic issues and practices.

This Doctoral Program Offers two specializations: Management and International Business.

Management

UNAD Florida recognizes that an organization’s top leadership should have an array of knowledge about technical operations, so he/she can devise a great mission statement and have the aptitude to develop the staff’s capacity to implement that vision. We designed a program that uses course work to create a synergy between knowledge that is gained in the classroom and skills developed in the workplace. In that way, cognitive learning, workplace learning and peer learning build on each other

International Business

This specialization focuses on the essential elements required to understand and manage multinational and international business. Students interested in international business positions and/or teaching in post-secondary institutions of higher education at home and abroad benefit from this specialization.
