DBA Program at a glance

The UMSL Doctor of Business Administration program is a three-year, cohort-based program that offers a flexible format, with limited monthly visits to campus. Over the course of the program, participants make only three weekend trips to campus per term.

UMSL DBA students move through the program in a cohort and meet face-to-face one weekend a month, then engage and collaborate with faculty and students in the online learning platform for discussions. The first two years cover an array of cutting-edge business and management topics and the third year is spent focusing on the candidate’s dissertation research.

The UMSL DBA is designed to train engaged management scholars in a learning community supported by select internationally renowned faculty with close ties to business and recognized for their research impact and expertise in graduate education.
