Unheard of until recently, doctoral degrees in business are not only becoming common, but are being recognized as excellent tools for specialization and advancement. As the editors of Great Business Schools explain, “Many jobs in academia, at think tanks, and in the private sector require a doctorate degree.  For example, professors and senior researchers often need an advanced degree.” “Anyone who wants to work in these roles may need to get a Doctoral degree, such as a Doctorate in Business Administration or a PhD in Management or a related field,” as the editors put it; “Quite simply, you can become a thought-leading expert.” The editors point out, “While completing a doctorate in business administration, students conduct research on vital business topics, often of their choice. This allows them to hone expertise and acquire in-depth knowledge of complex subjects.” The ability to stand out in a competitive age, and turn the connections made along the way into career success, is well worth the time and effort of earning a Business PhD or DBA.

GBS rankings are designed to offer direction to every student, from traditional high school grads to working professionals and career changers. That is the reason Great Business Schools covers so many types of programs. As the editors explain, “The choice of an online program means working professionals and career-changing adults can get their degree without having to leave their current jobs. The ability to put your learning to work immediately is invaluable.” By featuring accredited, reputable institutions, GBS ensures that prospective students can trust their choices.

Going to the right school is important for every student. Great Business Schools doesn’t get caught up about which schools are the “best.” They focus on what makes business schools great places for students to learn and grow. Rankings and resources that reflect a wide range of needs and priorities are what set GBS apart.
