The University of Scranton welcomed the second cohort of students into its doctor of business administration (DBA) program.
Douglas M. Boyle, DBA, associate professor, Accounting Department chair and DBA program director, faculty from the DBA program, University Trustees and DBA students who entered the program in the fall of last year, joined together to help orient the new students into the program at a welcome session on campus.
Housed in the University’s Kania School of Management, the DBA program began in the fall semester of 2017.
The University’s DBA program, with a concentration in accounting, was developed to provide experienced practitioners with a practical pathway to an academic career. The program offers participants flexibility, while still providing for the development of the knowledge and skill set necessary to become a “scholarly academic” – one who is qualified to teach at a school of business that possesses or is seeking formal accreditation by Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
The incoming DBA students are:
Shea N. Burden of Athens, Ohio;
Felisha N. Fret of Great Neck, New York;
Anuradha (Anu) C. Ghai of Allentown;
Jessica L. Hildebrand of Mountain Top;
Hugh Lambert of Rochester, New York;
Ran Li of Potsdam, New York;
Alexis C. Montelone of Bensalem;
Afia A. Oppong of New City, New York;
Linette Rayeski of West New York, New Jersey;
Savas Saymaz of Whitehall;
Charles Speicher of North Attleboro, Massachusetts;
Ashley L. Stampone of Old Forge;
James W. Sunday of Scranton.
