Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programs are designed to provide professionals and executives with advanced tools and research skills required for strategic planning and decision making. DBA programs are popular among working professionals because the focus is on applied problem solving. Many DBA graduates either continue their career as management executives, use the degree to shift their career, or use the degree to alter their career trajectory within the same discipline. Graduating from a quality DBA program demonstrates the highest levels of commitment to continual learning, leadership excellence, and professional development. The USU Doctor of Business Administration is a 42-credit hour program with a strategic management concentration.

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is a program requirement and students must take at least one term of CPT prior to entering their Systematic Project courses. Students are permitted to take more than one term of CPT if they choose so long as they remain eligible. Once students have been authorized for CPT, they will be enrolled in MGT998 DBA Professional Symposium.
