    University of Scranton Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) student Gregory Kogan co-authored the text book “Self-Service Data Analytics and Governance for Managers,” which was published in 2021 by Wiley.

    “The Scranton DBA program provided me with incredible research support and the professors were very involved in assisting with research and publications,” said Kogan, Manalapan, New Jersey. “It felt great to be in such an inclusive and encouraging environment that promoted collaboration between professors and DBA students. Dr. Doug Boyle, the DBA program director at Scranton, was both a coach and mentor to me. I hope to continue to collaborate with him and others at Scranton after graduation.

    Kogan said he and other DBA students say Scranton’s program is “the best in the country.”

    “The Scranton DBA program faculty were very caring and provided rigorous course work while also emphasizing key avenues toward success with research and publication. Furthermore, the connections that I made with other DBA students are invaluable and I am looking forward to keeping in touch with the Scranton University network in the future,” said Kogan.

    A certified public accountant (CPA), Kogan is currently an assistant professor of practice in accounting at Virginia Tech University. He previously taught accounting practice at Long Island University. He has experience as an auditor at Ernst & Young and as a controller at Tiger Management. He earned his bachelor’s degree in computer science and his MBA in accounting from Rutgers University. He is a member of the third cohort of DBA students at Scranton and will graduate from the program in 2022.

    Housed in the Kania School of Management, the University’s DBA program began in the fall semester of 2017. The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) recognized Scranton’s DBA program for “Innovations and Best Practices in Canada, Latin America and the United States” in 2019. The program was developed with a concentration in accounting, 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).
