George Fox University’s Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree is designed for business leaders and educators to increase their knowledge as well as build on their current understanding of business concepts, all within the context of a Christ-centered institution. Our students complete a business core, a research core with a dissertation, and an education core that includes a teaching or consulting focus. In addition, they choose an accounting, management or marketing concentration for in-depth study.

The George Fox University DBA program is designed for students in the following settings:

  • College and university faculty members and staff
  • Business professionals who want to transition to become professors or consultants
  • Business professionals seeking enrichment, knowledge and leadership

Program Format

The format for our DBA program consists mainly of an online curriculum and includes two in-person sessions at our Oregon campus each year.

This hybrid format allows working professionals convenient access to a highly accredited business program without sacrificing the learning experience gained from dialoguing with a cohort of their peers.

  • COO (Chief Operating Officer)
  • CTO (Chief Technology Officer)
  • Vice President of International Sales

  • Corporate Trainer

Program Testimonial

“The DBA program at George Fox University was phenomenal and life-changing. As a busy professional and family man, the hybrid format worked well for me. The relationships that I built with cohort students, via residencies and online communication, were stronger than at any previous university. Upon completing the program, I was able to conduct academic research, design college courses and training sessions, and engage in high-level policy discussions. I have also had a considerable amount of career opportunities after completing the program. I am truly grateful for the DBA experience at George Fox University.”
