The DBA is the degree for business people who would like to add research as part of defining, utilizing, and evaluating the issues that the organization must confront. The DBA allows those businessmen and women to expand their careers by procuring another advanced Business Administration degree.

The DBA can be counted as a Ph.D.; it just depends on the institution where you obtained it, and where you plan to use it. Those who pursue this route are looking to develop their business and strategy skills further. The Ph.D. is a degree that is more centered on those who are interested in the field of academics, and it is more research oriented.

It requires that you perform certain variables, and this includes preparing a working thesis and other types of research projects. Sometimes there is a final exam that takes the place of either one. Both degrees usually take a full ten years to complete.

Ph.D. and DBA are two of the types of degrees that a person can obtain. Ph.D. stands for Doctor of Philosophy. In most countries, this is the highest degree that a person can obtain. DBA stands for Doctor of Business Administration. Both degrees can take four to six years and can have a number of benefits, including range in the field that a person can work on and salary increases. Those who hold PHDs normally move onto a field of education, mainly teaching in colleges. Those with DBAs tend to become leaders in current businesses and can also teach business.
