Program Delivery and Scope

In general, the Lincoln University DBA program is delivered by Lincoln University professors using a face-to-face instructional mode on a semester basis. Some academic coursework including internship, special projects, and dissertations’ supervision may be provided in a special studies format, when the student’s research or study assignment requires them to be away from campus. Selected required core or elective concentration courses may also be offered online or in a special studies format during periods when students are not normally expected to be on campus (e.g. summer or winter breaks) or environmental and health concerns restrict the scheduling of on-campus classes.

Most students accepted into the DBA program are expected to be in full-time attendance and available to take classes as scheduled during the University’s normal operating hours. Students are also expected to be continuously enrolled in DBA program courses throughout their entire program of study unless specific individual exceptions are granted.

Students admitted to the DBA program on a part-time basis should arrange their work schedule so that they could take courses and make progress toward earning the doctoral degree in a timely manner.
