DBA Residency kicks off Thursday

April 19, 2022

Northwood University’s Doctor of Business Administration Residency kicks off this week.

The annual residency, which will be held in a virtual format this year, is set to take place April 21-24 and includes all doctoral students in the program, regardless of their progress. The four-day program provides an opportunity for students to focus on crucial elements of success including tips on writing, research and formulating a strong dissertation direction.

“We are very excited for the upcoming DBA residency,” stated Lisa Fairbairn, Dean of DeVos Graduate School. “It’s a great opportunity for all four cohorts of DBA students to network, collaborate and learn from each other. As many students are nearing the dissertation phase of their program, much of the residency will be focused on preparing them for this part of their doctoral journey. Students will engage in research think tanks and will have the opportunity to meet with a diverse pool of Northwood University faculty who share similar research interests and could support them on their dissertation committees.”

The residency agenda includes group breakouts based on research interests, a dissertation process panel, committee/chair introductions, library resource overview, DBA job opportunities, campus research group, and various workshops (dissertation proposal, introduction to the dissertation process, etc.)

Michigan author David Vizard will join the DBA Residency on Sunday April 24th to engage in a question and answer session with DeVos Graduate School faculty and students. Vizard is a former award-winning newspaper and magazine writer and editor. David is a Marine veteran who has taught college-level journalism and writing, and recently completed his sixth novel in the Nick Steele series.

Northwood University’s Richard DeVos Graduate of School announced the addition of a DBA degree program in April 2020. The DBA program is a natural next step for those with a master’s degree in a business-related field who are looking to enhance their knowledge and expertise to transform themselves into better problem-solvers and business leaders. This rigorous 54- to 60-credit hour program of study focuses on applying existing theories and knowledge to real-world business problems. The result: a complete leader whose marketability has skyrocketed.
