Diploma Example

Pursuing this program was the biggest achievement of my career. I joined the program as a knowledge-thirsty student and graduated as an authority in quality management. This feat was attained through many hours of blended faculty-student interactions.

Faculty and staff of Cambridge College are extremely devoted to students’ academic and professional success. I was promoted into a senior position just a year into the doctoral program and I believe it’s just getting started.

What You Will Learn in the Online Doctor of Business Administration Quality Management Program

This quality management program provides comprehensive instruction (theory and application) in the business administration discipline, with a specialized focus on Quality Systems & Improvement Management (QSIM). The curriculum includes 10 core business courses which allow students to learn and explore the latest business practices, research and trends. With five additional courses for the QSIM specialty, doctoral students become experts in this field. Doctoral students work independently to complete assignments, conduct research, and accomplish other required academic tasks including presenting their findings at a professional conference. DBA in QSIM students then synthesize what they learned in their coursework by conducting independent, unique and relevant research that can inform practice in business, resulting in the final deliverable of the program — the publication of a dissertation.

Upon successful completion of the DBA in QSIM, graduates will possess a wide variety of knowledge, skills, and abilities to serve as Quality Systems & Improvement Management experts at senior levels within organizations. This program is specifically designed to enable students to be able to:

  • Organize and lead teams to solve complex problems and improve business processes.
  • Communicate across all levels of an organization with confidence.
  • Lead major organizational change initiatives.
  • Think critically and conduct and synthesize scholarly research.
  • Analyze, construct, and present a business case for senior-level decision making.
  • Develop, collect, and track executive level dashboard metrics.
  • Identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use information for problem solving and opportunity identification.
  • Contribute to and foster global competitiveness of the organization by promoting innovation, technology, and new marketing opportunities and minimizing threats.
  • Lead internal and external organizational assessment.

DBA in Quality Systems Management Dissertation

The DBAQSIM Doctoral Dissertation requires students to conduct rigorous research that must generate tangible results, inform practice and add to the business body of knowledge. Students learn skills to conduct real-world quantitative and qualitative research in DBA 805W Research Methodologies and Scholarly Writing DBA 820W Business Research and Application, as well as in three courses specifically dedicated to preparing and guiding them through the process of writing their dissertation.

Writing a doctoral dissertation requires each student to identify an important problem of interest to industry and apply the appropriate business theory, research methodology and statistical rigor to draw conclusions that uniquely contribute to the general body of knowledge. The process of writing a dissertation is challenging and requires a determination and a commitment to excellence.

The program is designed so that the required courses introduce topics in different subject areas and encourage students to conduct their own exploration of the literature and research in these different topic areas. The goal is for students to identify a topic that they are passionate about and a topic that is relevant and interesting to the business community. It is expected that once a student completes their dissertation, the student will become a valued expert in their topic.
