I am still a ways out from completing my degree with Duke but I was curious what others thoughts are on potentially pursuing a DBA? I spent (3) years as the Assistant Vice President of a Financial Institution in my area and I am currently employed my an independent Wealth Management firm and working on the SIE, Series 7 and Series 66 to be a Financial Advisor with the company. On the side, I teach Personal Finance, Advanced Personal Finance and Banking Management at an AACSB Business School. My goal would be eventually to move into academia full-time and bring in my professional experience to the classroom. I feel students learn more and engage more when the professor has real-world knowledge beyond the theory learned in a doctoral program. Would pursuing the DBA be pointless with my experience? Would it be worthwhile? I will never be able to pursue a full-time on-campus degree due to family and work obligations. Obviously, I would be looking at online programs. Again, still a ways out but when it comes to these decisions, I try to weigh them significantly before deciding.
