Why a Hult DBA?

Find new answers to new questions with Hult's DBA

This inaugural Doctorate of Business Administration leverages Hult’s experience in world-class business education and research. This is a new kind of DBA that aims to empower a new generation of senior business leaders and create new answers to new questions.

You’ll take part in online sessions approximately once every two weeks and convene with your peers three times a year on a Hult campus. After 2.5 years (or 30 months), you’ll graduate with a US accredited doctorate degree and the skills to improve business practice around the world. Hult’s DBA is your path to career advancement or a transition to a career in teaching or consulting.
