Like the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), the Doctor of Management (DM) is a professional doctorate degree. However, instead of a focus on business administration and quantitative subject areas, the focus of the DM is on management. Earning a DM provides management professionals and business degree holders with the advanced skills in research, analysis, theory and practice needed to attain leadership positions in business, government, or education. The program creates an opportunity for the student to demonstrate application of the knowledge and skills gained in the course work portion of the program and to demonstrate the critical thinking and analytical skills required to successfully complete the Doctoral Project.



Primary objectives of this program include equipping students with the knowledge and ability to:

  1. Employ advanced written communication skills to share complex information, organizational vision, and actionable guidelines to various audiences. (ILO1)
