CBU Online set to offer its second doctoral program

Published Oct 19, 2016

Riverside, Calif. (Oct. 19, 2016) – California Baptist University’s Online and Professional Studies (OPS) division will offer its second doctorate this January—a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA).

Dr. David Poole, vice president for OPS, said the program is ideal for individuals who are experienced leaders who want to teach, for those who want to pursue a doctorate while teaching or for individuals seeking to grow in their leadership role. The three-year program will cover areas such as organization and management, finance, strategic marketing, economic theory and ethics.

“This [will give students] additional tools to take back to their businesses so they can enhance the success and productivity of the organization,” Poole said.

By offering the DBA program, OPS can help to realize CBU’s global mission, Poole said.

“That’s one of the great things about OPS,” Poole said. “As a university committed to the Great Commission, we can go to the ends of the earth. When we see people [enroll] from out of state and out of the country, I think that’s meeting that mission.”

OPS also offers a Doctor in Public Administration, which is aimed for individuals working in public service.
