The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) at Colorado Technical University is the terminal degree for business professionals. The program integrates practical and theoretical skills to prepare students to think and act strategically. The program enhances students’ abilities to make positive contributions and be a thought-leader in the area of their chosen concentration.
The program thus includes fifteen core instructional courses plus nine doctoral research courses. Each class is conducted online.
In addition, graduation requires the approval of a dissertation which documents the student's research processes and presents the findings and conclusions of that research, and suggests future research. The dissertation is divided into two major segments: the proposal and the full dissertation. The proposal will be developed by the student, and then submitted by the mentor to the University Review Board. The research will then be conducted and written up, resulting in the full dissertation, which is then reviewed by a committee. These processes are conducted under the supervision of CTU's professors.
In addition to the successful completion of the above 96 credit hours with an acceptable GPA, students must also satisfactorily complete and defend their research with a dissertation.
Doctoral programs at Colorado Technical University require a residential symposium. Additional information about CTU's doctoral symposium can be located in the Doctoral Symposium section
of this catalog.
The student must be continuously enrolled until meeting all graduation requirements. A student who has not completed the research requirements by the end of the formal coursework continues by registering for RES893 Dissertation Research Continuation according to CTU’s re-take policy.
