Indiana Tech has designed a new opportunity for MBA graduates to earn a doctorate in global leadership. The school says the Pathway to Ph.D. program enables students who have earned a Master of Business Administration from any accredited institution to transfer 15 credit hours of their MBA coursework toward a Ph.D. in Global Leadership from Indiana Tech.
Indiana Tech says MBA graduates will be able to transfer credit for five of the six courses in the new business administration concentration, allowing them to begin the Ph.D. program one-third of the way to completion. The program is open to Ph.D. in Global Leadership applicants who meet all other program requirements.
“This exciting new program is a truly unique pathway to a Ph.D. for MBA graduates,” said Dr. Angie Fincannon, director of Indiana Tech’s Ph.D. in Global Leadership Program. “It’s an innovative approach, making a Ph.D. more accessible than ever for highly qualified working professionals who have demonstrated mastery in business administration. The Pathway to Ph.D. program will save students valuable time and more importantly, is accessible both nationally and internationally as a quality online program. This will allow the expertise of business professionals to gain competitive knowledge in global leadership through an outstanding Ph.D. program.”
In addition to the new business administration concentration, Indiana Tech’s Ph.D. in Global Leadership program offers concentrations in higher education administration and organizational leadership.
The first session of the program begins June 27.
