DBA vs PhD  [#permalink]

Hi,
I am considering executive DBA programmes and PhD programmes that I can pursue part-time. My background - 15 yrs of experience (10 yrs senior management), masters degree in public policy and also in technology management, currently work in strategy consulting as senior manager (one level below partner). My goal is to make partner within 5 yrs and then continue as partner for at least another 5 yrs. At that point, I'd like to transition to be a professor of practice at a business or public policy school (there are 3 strong B-Schools and 2 strong policy schools in my city). With all this in mind, I am considering a DBA so that I can begin to teach as adjunct and/or be more competitive for prof of practice positions down the road. Long term I would like to work in higher education administration (as a third career after being a prof of practice).

I am looking at the following programs (my research is at the intersection of business and policy, which is why these programmes are diverse):

Bocconi DBA
IE DBA
Erasmus part-time PhD in management
Univ of Florida DBA
UCL part-time PhD in public policy
Oxford part-time PhD in sustainable urban development

Any advice on which programmes would set me up the best? Or others that I should consider?

It is a very well researched and quite detailed showcase of the differences between a DBA and a PHD.

Best regards,
Chris

Hello southerncharm

Yes you explained very well how your goals are aligned with pursuing DBA degree.

From your current list, I would consider IE, University of Florida and UCL as first choice.

However, decision should be only yours depending on matching of your practical research interest and location for instance.

Costs in my opinion should not be deciding factor, you should treat it as an investment. :idea:

For that purpose, I have created two extensive lists with best DBA programs in US and Europe, along with other useful information and links to the program descriptions.

For US check here :

For Europe check here:

Good Luck with forming your application list ! :geek: :cool:
