Online DBA Program Overview

It’s no secret that pursuing a doctoral degree requires a significant investment of time. A commitment you may feel is challenging or possibly even unrealistic.

Alliant’s online DBA program is designed specifically for those who are more than just students – they may also be spouses, parents, and full or part-time professionals. Our unique format allows you to complete the online curriculum around your busy schedule, when it’s most convenient for you.

Our DBA degree online allows you to:

  • Connect with your professor one on one for additional guidance or to answer any of your questions.
  • Access your coursework, lectures, discussion boards, and more anywhere with an internet connection available.
  • Participate in thought-provoking online discussion with fellow classmates.
  • Receive customized notifications when a new lecture is posted, an assignment is due, a classmate posts a question or discussion topic, and more – which is synced to Google Drive.

Expertise Starts with Experience

The demands a student faces at any point in their educational career are great. This is especially true for students in our DBA program. So we created a unique aspect to our four-year degree program to not only alleviate some stress, but also help our students formulate strong, viable dissertations.

Most doctoral business degrees work in the same way: two years of coursework, two years of dissertation research. At Alliant, you start working on your dissertation in the very first year, right alongside program courses in statistics, survey methods, and cross-cultural issues. This way, you have more time to consider topics and – most importantly – your education can shape your final dissertation in direct, impactful ways.

But you won’t be doing this alone.

Alliant keeps the doctoral classroom size small because your dissertation is a big deal. One that benefits immensely from the personal attention of your professor. Because your professors, counselors, and support team want nothing more than to see you move forward – in your profession, community, and in your life.
