What’s the difference between a DBA and PhD?
If you’re considering a DBA or PhD in project management online, you may be wondering what the difference is. A DBA will focus on business principles that can help you continue in the field as a leader and professional. A PhD is more academic-focused and can help prepare you for roles in higher education or academic research.
Additionally, a project management PhD will likely require a dissertation. Our DBA does not require a dissertation. Instead, you will complete a research project that can help you solve a real-world business problem and conduct ground-breaking research.
Can you complete a PhD in 1 year?
Deciding to pursue an online PhD in project management is a big commitment, so it’s important to find out how long it will take to complete your program. The typical PhD takes 4 or more years to complete.
However, you can earn Liberty’s DBA in Project Management in just 3 years. This program can help you gain the expertise you need as a leader in your field faster than a typical PhD.
