New Platform for Doctorates of Business Administration (DBA): How Do You Identify a Quality Program in the Absence of Rankings?

How do you assess the quality of a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program in the absence of rankings? The new website DBA Compass provides guidelines for professionals who look for part-time doctoral programs in management

MUNICH, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In contrast to MBA programs, Doctorates of Business Administration (DBA) are not covered by internationally recognized rankings. Hence, proxies are needed to assess the quality of a program. The new platform Doctor of Business Administration Compass provides an overview of the five most important quality criteria:

1. Assess the research quality of the faculty.
2. Have a look at accredited programs.
3. Assess the reputation of a school.
4. How experienced is the school in teaching?
5. How well is the school exposed to executives?

The Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) offers executives a great opportunity: In three to four years, they can complete a doctoral degree in management without leaving their companies. In many cases, they can even design their research around a topic from within their companies so that their employer profits from the DBA studies. DBA programs differ a lot in terms of quality, however. The platform Doctor of Business Administration Compass provides an overview of more than 230 programs worldwide and guidelines on how to find a quality DBA.

The Doctor of Business Administration Compass www.dba-compass.com went online in October 2012 and provides an overview of management doctorates for professionals. It contains a database with schools and programs, background information on rankings and the difference between a DBA and a PhD as well as events and application deadlines. Further websites are: Master in Management Compass and Master of Business Administration Compass.
