    I am looking for some help on an online program for a PHD in Organizational leadership. My criteria is that it be as affordable as the NCU DBA program as far as affordability and delivery and RA accreditation. I can manage a difference of 4k to 5k in tuition. However, the programs that I have seen are from Eastern University, CAPELA, U OF P. That is not an option for me. I am happy and satisfied with the DL format.

    Would someone recommend the DBA from NCU with an concentration in organizational leadership? Just a thought since that is the closest I can get in my search. Unless there is a program i missed whether private or public university.

    The reasons are as follows:
    I have been studying organizational leadership since my undergraduate work at BIOLA University, and I do love the big picture planning and strategy thinking and dealing with the human element of the organization. I am currently at Liberty university, M.A. MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP PROGRAM SCHEDULED TO COMPLETE FALL 2010.

    Any help and consideration is as always appreciated. Hope everyone is having an awesome year thus far. Again any thoughts or ideas and questions that can help me out.
    Warmest Regards,

    If you're serious, don't let the price tag determine things. Remember, this degree will define you for the rest of your life. Get the right one from the right school.

    Student loans, when considered in human capital market terms, are a means by which workers borrow against future earnings. So go get one, and attend the right school.

    A cheap program isn't a bargain if it turns out badly. It just leaves a scar.

    Glad the post was accommodating; The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is accredited by HLC-NCA and the APA.

    As an employer who chooses to pay for some of my employees to pursue doctorates, I have actually begun supporting the Ed.D. in organizational leadership at NCU. It is practically focused, affordable and the dissertation process can focus on meaningful activities in our organization. Two of my employees have completed docs in other fields at NCU and we have found their skill development meaningful.
  8. Glad to hear the good report on NCU. Thanks for the post!

    If you live in Southern California or if you can travel to Los Angeles twice a semester then Pepperdine has this Ed.D. in Organizational Leadership:
    Several fellow employees at my last company were taking this degree (and others were in a doctorate program at Capella (all tuition company paid).

    No, you define define your degree. I think a weak person is defined by the paper.
