If managing and leading others is your passion, then earning a doctorate degree in management may be the perfect way to learn advanced skills and advance your career. Although you already received advanced coursework, research and skills from a bachelor’s and master’s degree, a PhD or DBA (Doctor of Business Administration) can help you stand out from the competition and become highly valuable in the global workplace.
One of the greatest advantages of earning a doctorate degree in this area is the boost in salary you can receive. For example, in 2004 the average salary was $140,350 for CEOs and that number continues to rise.
Upon graduation, you can apply for positions such as professor, high level executive and program manager. The curriculum for this doctorate degree covers topics such as ethics and legal studies; marketing, entrepreneurship and economics.
