Executive DBA Programs: Rankings vs. Comparisons

In your search for the right program, you may come across several DBA program rankings. We challenge you to think critically and examine the criteria of each program, rather than taking a simple ranking at face value.  

In order to make this process easier for prospective DBA students, we have created a tool for you to examine and compare the details of our member schools, all of which have met our standards of quality for membership. These details are gathered and presented without partiality or agenda. 

Currently, there are no rankings for DBA programs published from internationally recognized institutions, including the EDBAC.

Making the Right DBA Program Decision for You

Starting a DBA program is a costly investment—in time, tuition, effort, and opportunity cost. Instead of relying on DBA program rankings, compare programs based upon criteria that matters to you. These may include:

  • Proximity to your home or business: How far are you willing to travel to go to the school of your choice?

  • Number and length of “face-to-face” residencies: Do you want to maximize contact with other DBA program participants? Do you prefer face-to-face instruction or do you need the convenience of fewer, longer residencies or online instruction?

  • Tuition: How much will the program be and what is included in the price?

  • Program Statistics: How large is the class size? How long has the program been in existence? What is the graduation rate?

  • Accreditation: There are several international and national accreditation bodies for business schools that require programs consistently meet their stringent academic standards. A few of these include AACSB, ACBSP, IACBE, AMBA, and EQUIS. Researching the academic standards that these imply can give you a better idea of the standards that these programs meet.

  • Profile of Students: How diverse is the student population? How much experience do they have? What are the academic requirements for a student to enter the program?

Get Started

Our comparison tool seeks to put the power of DBA program rankings into your hands. The right program for you can only be determined by one person—you!

Best of luck in your search,
