Beyond the MBA: the Next Degree in Business
Why the Executive Doctorate?
To thrive in today's complex, internationally competitive business environment, organizations require leaders who possess interdisciplinary knowledge, the ability to think in global terms and the acumen to design systems that shape and respond to worldwide and societal trends.
The Executive Doctorate in Business program offered by the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University helps executives develop these capabilities by teaching them how to apply relevant knowledge and research skills to contemporary business problems.
It also addresses the lifelong learning needs of intellectually active professional adults who already possess advanced degrees in their fields but wish to continue their education to the highest level.
The purpose of the Executive Doctorate in Business program is to advance the development and practice of effective organizational leadership by providing senior-level executives with:
- Knowledge and expertise required to identify, understand and successfully tackle the interdisciplinary, big-picture issues that characterize global business management today
- Skills in formal social inquiry required to define and address complex issues and to disseminate knowledge related to their profession in a variety of professional and public outlets to influence professional activity and public policy
- An interdisciplinary, globally oriented perspective unavailable in traditional advanced degree programs
Robinson's Executive Doctorate in Business is one of only a few such programs in the world. It is taught by the same faculty who lead the fourth-largest Ph.D. program in the nation and who teach in our top-five MBA program for working professionals.
We will begin our recruitment for the class starting in August 2014 in June. Please check back at that time for applications and upcoming information sessions.
The Robinson College of Business is accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)
