UMGC Doctor of Business Administration Program Recognized by CEO Magazine

Adelphi, Md. (March 1, 2022)—CEO Magazine recently recognized University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC) School of Business as home to one of the world’s best Doctor of Business Administration programs. UMGC was ranked among more than 100 of the top DBA programs for the third year in a row.

“Our DBA program’s continued recognition is driven in part by our desire to shape executive-level working professionals by engaging them in research and analysis of real-world management issues,” said Ravi Mittal, PhD, chair of the Department of Business Administration at UMGC.

CEO Magazine’s rankings assess a college or university’s quality of faculty, geography and international standing. 

“It is also a testament to our outstanding faculty who are deeply committed to the academic success and lifelong learning of our students,” added Mittal.

UMGC’s DBA program, formerly the Doctor of Management program, attracts scholar-practitioners who excel at leadership roles in the for-profit, nonprofit, government and nongovernmental organizations, including higher education.  UMGC’s cohort-based DBA takes a minimum of three years to complete, which includes in-person residencies and a dissertation.
