SU’s doctoral business administration program was ranked 17th in the nation by College Choice.

Shippensburg University’s doctor of business administration (DBA) graduate program was ranked 17th in the nation by College Choice this year, based upon SU’s reputation, graduate rate, selectivity and faculty resources.

College Choice, a website that assists students in choosing a college, ranks colleges each year on various factors, including summer school and academic programs such as social work and business.

The website awarded the program a score of 31.6 out of 100, and was considered notable as the only Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accredited at a public university in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia or Washington, D.C.

SU’s program also attracted the attention of College Choice for its flexibility in meeting the needs of a variety of students. Classes are offered on weekends to accommodate students who work during the week. The weekend classes allow students to form closer bonds with faculty, according to the College Choice website.

During the first year of the program, students are immersed in research and statistical methods upon which research is based, according to the website. 

In their second year, students are enrolled in a research colloquium course and participate in a variety of seminars that are geared toward pursuing each student’s academic interests.

SU’s doctoral business administration program will begin accepting students in the fall of 2018.
