Hi Everyone. It's my first time on this site and I need some advice. I began working as soon as I graduated from my Undergrad at a school in the California UC system. After graduating, I began working full time and within a few months, I began my MBA. I just completed my MBA and I'm interested in a PhD (or EdD but Ph.D. is ideal) in Leadership which I would like to use in the workforce and in the world of academia as a professor. I have found a lot of interesting programs that are hybrid/online, however many of them require 5+ years of experience. I have 2+ years of work experience and want to find a program that can accommodate full-time work and will be useful in the business world while also being affordable. It's also important to me that the school has a good reputation and has a brick-and-mortar location. The two programs I have found so far that interest me are Indiana Tech's Global Leadership Ph.D. which has an MBA track that will allow me to skip 5 classes and save money and time. the drawback on this one is that I'm not sure what the reputation of the school is and there are no live classes or a cohort. The other program that interests me is University of the Pacific's EdD in Leadership and Innovation. I really like that this program meets monthly, has live classes, and the school is fairly well respected from my understanding. The drawback, in this case, is that it's an EdD, and I would prefer a Ph.D. I would love to hear your thoughts on either school and hear about if there are any other programs that may be a good fit for me and are under $65k. Thank You!
