Highlighting the Saint Leo DBA Program with Dr. Dale Mancini, Current Students, & Alumni (Podcast)

Eventually, someday, I would like to obtain a Doctoral degree. I had thought for a long time that it would be a Doctor of Ministry, since my early ambitions in life were to be a minister. While that degree is still a possibility, the Doctor of Business Administration is, for me, a very attractive alternative. However, I wouldn't recommend anyone in my line of work obtain a DBA either early in mid-career. Ageism is real, and the last thing I need as I approach my 50s is something to justify being told that I'm 'too senior' for a role. No, for me a DBA is a captstone to a career, something that should lead to consulting work or, in my case, contribute to ministry capabilities. Specifically, since I'm planning to shift into non-profit work, with a view towards community development, the management and leadership expertise that comes with earning a DBA could be very worthwhile.
