Integrating Faith and Business
The George Fox Doctor of Business Administration program offers a unique focus on the integration of faith and ethics into business practice and teaching. Students study and practice the relationship between faith and vocation, and how application of theological and spiritual principles and practices is manifested in the workplace or classroom.
Designed for the Schedule of a Working Professor or Professional
The online and hybrid delivery of the George Fox DBA allows doctoral students to complete this 56-credit program in four years while working full time. Online courses are conducted entirely over the Internet, while hybrid courses include an on-campus residency. Hybrid courses include reading, projects and participation in a vigorous online community, and are supplemented with an on-campus residency component. DBA students should expect to come to George Fox’s Newberg, Oregon campus twice per year during their three years of course work, with the dissertation work to follow.
Focus on Research and Teaching
Students become effective researchers and discriminating consumers of research while also learning how to apply pedagogical tactics, techniques and styles for teaching effective and ethical business practices. Students complete a supervised teaching practicum and also will complete an applied, organization-focused doctoral project or a traditional dissertation.
Students choose a management or marketing concentration to focus their strengths in teaching and scholarship. Students choosing the Management Concentration will study Foundations of Management and Leadership, Strategic Management, Organizational Theory and Behavior, and Human Resources Development. Students choosing the Marketing Concentration will study Principles of Marketing, Research Design in Marketing, Consumer Behavior and Advanced Topics in Marketing.
Learn from experienced peers from around the country. Seminar-style residency classes and online community both draw upon the experiences and expertise of class members, which include experienced business educators and trainers, and senior managers and executives.
