    Just looking up some DBA programs and this one seems pretty good, the only thing is, it's got ACBSP and not the AACSB I was looking for. Other than that, this is an affordable program from a pretty good school. There are 4 or 5 different concentrations, so for around $35+ grand, an online DBA. Link:

    And for those who have some "experience" and "graduate" studies, they have a completion program. Similar to the one offered by Walden I mentioned a few months back, I would gladly take this option over Walden any day of the week. Link:

    Interesting, but this is specifically an ABD completion program, requiring applicants to have 30 doctoral level credits already. Is that what you're looking for?

    It looks to me like there is both a doctoral completion track and also four non-doctoral completion concentrations.

    Not ACBSP accredited as yet.

    "ACBSP requires all programs to be in existence for two years and have graduates before granting this higher level program accreditation. The DBA program launched in the fall of 2019; therefore, the DBA will submit its self-study and apply for voluntary ACBSP accreditation status in 2022."

    You're right, I read it too quickly.

    That means the ABD completion program is $17,850, which is on the lower end for those. Someone lucky/connected enough to get regular adjunct gigs could pay that off in a year.

    I get why people prefer programs with AACSB, but has anyone ever seen a meaningful difference in utility between a DBA that has ACBSP or IACBE and one that is merely institutionally accredited?
