New RRU doctoral program serves students looking to “deep dive” into today’s burning business problems

February 10, 2019

Royal Roads University has announced that it will offer a Doctor of Business Administration degree in 2020. The blended program will synthesize academic rigour with the applied focus of professional doctorates, an RRU release states. “Businesses are grappling with increasingly complex challenges,” said RRU President Philip Steenkamp. “Leaders are looking toward applied research to inform innovative business practices and strong management decisions in today’s global economy.” Program Head Hassan Wafai added that the DBA’s unique advantage lies in the way it responds to changing Canadian labour market demands by preparing students to support industry. RRU (BC)
