Goldey-Beacom College names head of business doctorate program

Goldey-Beacom College has announced that W. Daniel Young, Ph.D. has been appointed as Director of the newly created Doctor of Business Administration program. Responsible for fulfilling the vision of the program, he will create doctoral courses, recruit faculty and students, manage the curriculum, comprehensive exam and the dissertation processes as well as linking the program to the state and regional communities. The College’s new program will be unique in the field of doctoral studies, including partnerships with several corporations and governmental agencies to solve business problems through student coursework. This stands in stark contrast to other DBA programs, which may simply use textbooks and past case studies to achieve learning goals and objectives.
