Have you heard about the Daniels Executive PhD?
Most great business leaders out there have at least one thing in common, and that's the "always a student" mentality. But what happens when they get lost in their mission? They take a step back, get a fresh perspective, and come back to the challenge with new insights. The University of Denver's Daniels College of Business understands this, which is why in fall of 2018 they'll be offering an Executive PhD program
-- making it only one of three schools to offer an Executive PhD nationwide.
“We know there are business leaders who aspire to earn a PhD in order to enhance their skill sets, however, the rigidity of a traditional PhD program in business makes it impossible for business leaders to pursue a PhD without leaving the workforce,” says Lisa Victoravich, associate dean and program director.

The program consists of a three-year flexible curriculum that's designed to help people maintain their career and practice what they're learning in the real world. It's also a way for business leaders to sharpen their skills in quantitative analysis and decision making, while they make a meaningful contribution both to the academic and business collective through the research they'll perform.
“Our world-class faculty at Daniels can mentor you to help you reach your answer, regardless of the area of study, and push our collective understanding of business to new heights.”
