DBA residency to feature Jimmy Greene

April 27, 2023

The chief executive officer of Jimmy Greene & Associates will be featured during the DeVos Graduate School’s Doctor of Business Administration Residency, May 4-7.

“We invited Jimmy Greene to keynote this year’s residency, as he has a strong track record of transformational leadership in industry and in the community,” noted DBA Program Lead Dr. L. Todd Thomas.

All doctoral students will be heading to Midland to focus on crucial elements of success, including tips on writing, research and formulating a strong dissertation direction.

“This is a great opportunity for all cohorts of DBA students to network, collaborate and learn from each other,” stated Lisa Fairbairn, Dean of DeVos Graduate School. “Much of the residency will be focused on preparing them for 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, dissertation defense presentations, committee/chair introductions, tips on writing and editing, faculty research sessions, positioning a DBA in job search and promotion, an overview of the publishing process, a mixed methods roundtable, and various workshops (preparing and delivering a dissertation proposal, topic definition and dissertation goals, etc.)

Northwood University’s Richard DeVos Graduate of School announced the addition of a DBA degree program in April 2020, and the first cohort of 15 students started their doctoral journey in August of that year.

“The DBA program is a natural next step for those with a master’s degree in a business-related field who want to enhance their knowledge and expertise to transform themselves into better problem-solvers, business leaders and scholar-practitioners,” Fairbairn noted.
