My personal requirements for a Doctor of Business Administration was a flexible distance learning program because of my busy work schedule. I have successfully completed several of the core course requirements of the DBA program, while still maintaining a balanced personal and family life. The completion of the courses built professional knowledge that is invaluable in my career and will greatly assist in the completion of my doctoral manuscript. The quality has been excellent through the culturally diverse professors from various countries over the world. The modules are both relevant in modern business context as well as intellectually stimulating in the enhancement of my personal growth. The commitment of the faculty members through the one-on-one interaction in the completion of assignments has been outstanding.
