What is your highest calling? To lead the next generation into a new global arena of business? Offer unique expertise to prop up struggling companies? Be the most dynamic in your field?

A Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) from Alliant’s California School of Management and Leadership gives you the expertise and experience in the predominant realms of business to answer that call. With the working professional in mind, Alliant’s DBA program is offered online and on our San Diego campus.

From advanced statistics to cross-cultural management, to in-depth, collaborative research courses, the DBA program defines interdisciplinary approaches with an extensive emphasis of strategic planning. Self-learning takes a front seat and an open mind is key. Because all of this is designed to educate you on theory, prepare you with extensive experience, and help you become internationally—and culturally—engaged. So you can lead in advanced areas of management, consulting, and administration, or create the next big trend through research and teaching.

Here at Alliant, we are proud to help heed the call of tomorrow’s business pioneers.

A Path More Easily Traveled

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 three-to-four-year degree program to not only alleviate some stress but also help our students formulate strong, viable dissertations.

Our doctoral business degrees work as follows: two years of coursework, one to two years of dissertation research. At Alliant, you start working on your dissertation, gain a faculty mentor and can choose a faculty supervisor for their dissertation in the very first year. Also, there are four dissertation courses built in throughout your program. This way, you have more time to consider topics and—most importantly—your education can shape your final dissertation in direct, impactful ways.

Expertise Starts with Experience

Experience starts with a hands-on approach. A desire to not only learn, but to master. Your road to expertise in our DBA program begins with a multi-faceted approach. You will stretch your boundaries of comfort into a multicultural world. You will be taught, and also teach yourself, to understand the intricate mechanisms that fuel the marketplace. And you will put your collective experience into the crown jewel of your degree—your dissertation.

The bridge between experience and expertise is built with your dissertation as the cornerstone. During this time, you will work to prove an original idea or seek to expand upon one lesser known. 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 and in your life.

The Alliant Choice

We don’t take it lightly when a student chooses us for their education. Making Alliant International University your home means choosing more than just a school. It means choosing quality, from faculty to finish.

Learning at Alliant is not just about coursework, though that’s paramount. It’s not just about internships, though they’re vital. The greatness of an institution of higher education can be found in the harmonious balance of both scholarship and hands-on training. It’s also found in those you are learning with, learning from, and how you will transform your education into impact.

In our interconnected world, homogeny has been replaced with heterogeneity. At Alliant, it’s not about “fitting in,” because there is no one way to be. Our student body is uniquely diverse, they come from a world of backgrounds and they’ve all had a unique experience. Your exposure to this wealth of diverse experiences will help shape you into a more culturally- refined individual, while still sharing the one thing that all of our students have in common: A desire to better the world.

Helpful. Supportive. Open. These are just some of the ways our staff have been described by students. From application to graduation, we are here to help you succeed. And our faculty? They’re some of the best in their field, working professionals who are not only intimately familiar with changing trends, but are often the ones making change happen.

We know that everyone has a unique story and situation. That is why we tailor our programs to fit the needs of first-time freshmen and transfer students alike. We firmly believe that education should be accessible to all. Alliant will meet you right where you are. Right when you need us.
