Sacred Heart's Low-Res AACSB DBA in Finance
Jack Welch College of Business (WCOB) at Sacred Heart University, accredited by the AACSB, offers a low-residency Doctor of Business Administration in Finance.

"The delivery method relies predominantly on 'executive program style' meetings. The executive-style format encourages a collaborative environment. The weekend residency mode is based on face-to-face classroom instruction during the first two years of the program. The weekend residency requirement entails fifteen (15) two-day sessions each year." Meetings are on Sacred Heart's campus in Fairfield, Connecticut.

"Since the DBA in Finance is an applied research degree, the doctoral dissertation must reflect original student research on a topic related to applied issues in finance or financial economics.… It must be based on original research and add new knowledge to the discipline. Case studies and research papers that merely apply the existing knowledge to solving business problems do not qualify for a doctoral dissertation. It must address up-to-date, relevant issues pertaining to financial markets or institutions in order to reflect the applied nature of our DBA in Finance program."

The program lasts a minimum 3, maximum 7 years. Under special circumstances an extension may be possible by approval of the dean. Tuition is 11 300 per trimester; trimesters per year are Fall, Spring, and Late Spring. Tuition for three years would be 101 700.

Admission is selective. Minimum requirements include a master's degree and relevant work experience. GRE or GMAT scores are required but waivers may be possible. Students "should have a strong mathematical background."

Sacred Heart University is the second-largest Catholic university in New England. It was founded in 1963 by the Bishop of Bridgeport as the first Catholic university in the country staffed by laity.

Important disambiguation! The Jack Welch College of Business (WCOB) at the Sacred Heart University is completely distinct from the Jack Welch Management Institute (JWMI) at Strayer University. Sacred Heart is nonprofit. Strayer is a for-profit that shares ownership with Capella.
