I just completed the M.S. degree from TUI in Health Services Management and would like to continue my education. I'm aware that a business degree will help me in the future since hospitals are being run more like a business lately and some are requiring MBA's. My question is..is it more advantageous to have the DBA than an MBA? It appears that most DBA programs are three years long vs. 2 years for the MBA. What do you guys think? I have considered teaching sometime in the future, ( non-tenure) will the DBA help me land a teaching Job? I'm aware that a PHD is ideal, but i don't want to spend the four years in school.
