Competitive Edge: Drexel LeBow’s Executive DBA

MBA Blog / 14th June 2024

According to a recent report from the European Federation of Management Development, in conjunction with the Executive DBA Council, the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree is on an upward trajectory. Executive leadership is seeking a competitive edge through the practical application of research and the reputational benefits attached to a doctoral program.

While the ‘big picture’ view of business and management has often proven attractive to employers, there is a growing appreciation for the specialized knowledge that Executive DBA graduates bring to the workplace. Their ability to analyze data and generate unique, actionable insights that lead to better business decisions and outcomes is becoming invaluable.

Embodying this shift toward specialized expertise, Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business was one of the first to offer an Executive DBA program that empowers senior executives with the evidence-based learning and practical application needed to thrive in today’s dynamic business landscape. As an industry-driven, R1 research university, Drexel LeBow’s DBA courses feature research-active faculty across multiple disciplines, including Organizational Behavior, Strategy, Management Information Systems, Economics, Finance, and Marketing, and consist of three integrated streams:

● Seminar courses, which cover foundational theories and encompass new and emerging topics across disciplines.

● Methodology courses, which span scientific analyses through to research design and teach students how to collect and analyze data.

● Dissertation courses in which students are encouraged to study their passion and address burning industry questions.
