    I have been weighing the two options: $60k AACSB DBA in accounting versus $30k IACBE PhD in accounting. In terms of college teaching job, would it be worthwhile to spend $30k more to get the AACSB DBA instead of the $30k IACBE PhD?

    It all depends on which school you're going to, if the AACSB degree is from a more well known school with a good reputation, it may be more worth it there and vice versa, I would not even look at IACBE or just Regionally Accredited unless it's from a state school and more known in your state. It would be either ACBSP or AACSB - generally nothing lower, unless it's absolutely a steal of a deal. I don't know which schools you've decided on or interested in, but there are a few that are ACBSP DBA with several concentrations or a general DBA that is just $32.7K such as the one from Cali Southern... there may be more, but you'll have to search for them...

    The PhD is from University of Cumberland and the DBA is from Marshall University . It seems Cal Southern DBA does not have accounting major

    Between Cumberlands and Marshall, you should go for Marshall's DBA. Avoid going to only online schools, especially for-profit even it is regionally accredited.

    Not that you were saying this, but just to be clear, Cumberlands is non-profit and was a brick and mortar school long before it offered online programs.

    Life_Learner mentioned Cal Southern; it is a regional accredited for-profit school.
