Thomas Edison State University announced on Tuesday classes have started for its doctoral program in business administration.
An inaugural class of 20 members was admitted to the Doctor of Business Administration program, the Trenton-based university said. The program is the second created at the university, which also offers a Doctor of Nursing Practice.
The new, 48-credit program, which can be completed online, will specialize in organizational leadership, human resource management and general management, TESU said.
Michael Williams, the dean of the School of Business and Management, emphasized the importance of this degree for students to advance their career paths toward becoming executives, educators and consultants.
“These students working to obtain their DBA degree will be prepared to fill or create their next occupational role,” Williams said. “Through completion of the program, each candidate will demonstrate their discipline and capabilities that will serve as powerful professional differentiators enabling a competitive advantage in the global market.”
TESU said a grant helped support the cost of developing low or no-cost course materials for the program to minimize student spending.
