DBA Admission Criteria

VU seeks doctoral participants possessing a solid undergraduate and graduate educational preparation, reasonable managerial or professional experience, strong intellect and the capacity for independent investigation. An understanding of the contemporary economic, political and social context in which business organizations operate is important. While most applicants have a master's degree in a business or a public management-related field, applicants with strong academic preparation in other fields are equally welcome to apply. Doctoral participants must be fluent in English and are expected to write on a level meeting contemporary standards of professional publication.

The selection of applicants for admission to the doctoral program is made by a faculty Committee and is based on the applicant's overall accomplishments and skills. Successful applicants generally are admitted to the doctoral program twice a year. A complete application package must be received by the Admissions Committee well in advance of the anticipated matriculation date.
