Grand Canyon University
#1
I am considering the DBA program at Grand Canyon University. It seems there are very few online doctoral programs in business that are AACSB and the few that are cost an arm and leg and/or require 10+ years of executive experience. Grand Canyon University has a brick and mortar presence and has ACBSP accreditation at the doctoral level. I am curious if anyone has pursued a bachelors, masters or doctorate from GCU and if so, what was your experience?

You received a lot of good suggestions on the other forum. University of the Incarnate Word is a little more expensive, but I think it's the more attractive school. It doesn't have a history of being a for-profit school. They're a Catholic institution, but they're mostly secular. I'm from San Antonio, TX, and UIW has a decent reputation there.

The only issue I have with UIW is that their DBA is not accredited. The highest degree level in which ACBSP has them accredited for is the masters level.

The DBA is accredited, it just doesn't have secondary programmatic accreditation (i.e. ACBSP)... Which is generally not meaningful outside of academia. Are you planning on being a professor?

Hi,  

I am not super familiar with them, but, I think the GCU is moderately respected in the same way North Central University, Capella, Walden, Nova Southeastern, Southern New Hampshire University would be respected for adult education.  If you are going to be in academia, AACSB accreditation matters if you want to teach in a tenured Business Faculty role.  If you teach adjunct part time classes or full time at a less prestigious University, ACBSP accreditation might be accepted.  

Most non-traditional (i.e. limited residency or online) where you can work full time DBA that are AACSB accredited in the USA will cost a lot of money (i.e. $50-100k total cost).  I believe that University of Wisconsin, Whitewater is the least expensive. You might want to look outside of the USA (i.e. Universities in the UK and South Africa (Stellenbosch).  You need to have a research based master's degree for the South African schools.  If you are not required to have AACSB accreditation, check out UNISA in South Africa.  It costs like about $2k a year.

Lastly, I would recommend checking out Univ. of North Carolina, Greensboro PHD in Business Admin. It is AACSB accredited and is limited residency or almost if not all online. I think it is about $45k in total cost. Check out the middle column on the page link "Outside NC". I believe you have to take the GRE and need a master's degree. Please verify all of what I told you for your own.  I might be wrong.
