The University of Scranton welcomed the third 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 and DBA students from the first and second cohorts, joined together to welcome the new students into the program at an orientation 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:
Andrew J. Gregorowicz of Jessup;
Marissa Hoffmann of Smithtown, New York;
Gregory Kogan of Brooklyn, New York;
Laura B. Lamb of Pennellville, New York;
Marie S. Lopes of Pawtucket, Rhode Island;
Stasia H. Morlino of Plymouth Meeting;
Thomas K. Parker of Rock Hill, South Carolina;
Nicole M. Piotrowski of New York, New York;
Elizabeth S. Quaye of Laurelton, New York;
Natalie A. Roberts of Rosedale, New York;
Nadine S. Samuels of West Orange, New Jersey;
Jessie C. Wright of Poland, Ohio.
