The Doctorate in Business Administration at UNC Charlotte’s Belk College of Business opens three career paths that expand your horizons across the entire business landscape:

Corporate Consulting

Business School Professor

Become a professor at a business school. Your experience and advanced knowledge won’t just educate ambitious students; you will create a managerial tree that improves the world of business with every graduating class.

Corporate Change Agent

Become a catalyst for change in your company. Develop the skills to address complex and practical business challenges, so you can approach problems as an evidence-based manager—and a thought leader in your field.
