The first cohort of students began the new doctor of business administration (DBA) at The University of Scranton this fall semester.

The University’s DBA program, with a concentration in accounting, was developed to provide experienced practitioners with a practical pathway to an academic career. The program offers participants flexibility, while still providing for the development of the knowledge and skill set necessary to become a “scholarly academic” – one who is qualified to teach at a school of business that possesses or is seeking formal accreditation by Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).

The DBA program is housed in the University’s Kania School of Management, which is accredited by AACSB International. It is the third doctorate-level program offered by the University, which also offers a doctor of physical therapy degree (DPT) and a doctor of nursing practice (DNP).

Douglas M. Boyle, DBA, associate professor, Accounting Department chair and DBA program director, spoke to the students when they arrived on campus.

The incoming DBA students are:

Marcus Burke of Poughkeepsie, New York;

Joy Chacko of Chandler, Arizona;

Anthony Fulmore of Killeen, Texas;

Craig Gallagher of South Abington Township;

Daniel Gaydon of Plains            ;

Elena Isaacson of Glenville, New York;

Stephanie Lee of Chicago, Illinois;

Heather Losi of Liverpool, New York;

Amanda Marcy of Clifford Township;

Patrick O’Brien of North Merrick, New York;

Ronald Parker of Franklin, North Carolina;

Katheryn Zielinski of Bloomington, Minnesota.
