The Diploma in Business Administration (DBA) program is designed to enable non-business degree graduates and learners with professional experience to pursue studies for career or professional development needs. The DBA also allows graduates to complete bridging programs designed to satisfy professional organization accreditation.
Full-time students may complete their DBA in 12 to 16 months by completing the CBA – Fast Track program in their first term of study. Find the right business program to suit your needs with our helpful comparison chart.
