Offering such a program can attract many DBA candidates to pursue the degree to advance their careers, enhance their skills and knowledge, and fulfill personal learning goals.

DBA programs focus on research that can be applied directly to current business issues. DBA learners research problems or challenges they face in their industries and apply what they learn to resolve issues in their organisations. DBA students are inspired by lifelong learning, enjoy the academic experience, and wish to expand on their existing knowledge, both from a theoretical and analytical perspective. They are interested in bringing these high-level thinking skills and newly acquired research skills back into the workplace.

The DBA program is to train learners to become thought-leaders of management practice and creators of knowledge by engaging in applied research. With the aid of WILMINGTON METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY faculty, DBA learners will learn how to integrate management theory with practice and advance the field of evidence-based management.
