WHITEWATER, Wis. -

University of Wisconsin-Whitewater could be the only University in Wisconsin to offer a doctor of business administration degree, according to a release.

Under a plan approved by the UW System Board of Regents Friday, the UW-Whitewater will become the only university in Wisconsin to offer a doctor of business administration degree, according to the release.

Less than 10 Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International-accredited universities offer a DBA, and there aren’t any in Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan or Minnesota, according to the release.

The DBA will meet international-quality standards and is geared toward business professionals with at least six years of executive or managerial experience, according to the release. A master’s degree in business is required to apply.

The UW-Whitewater DBA is a 60-credit program where students attend intensive classes one weekend per month for two years, followed by a year of dissertation work, according to the release. Online activities and assignments supplement the classroom experience.

All faculty members who will teach courses in the program have Ph.D. degrees and have published research, according to the release.

The Higher Learning Commission is expected to approve the program sometime this academic year, and classes could start as early as September of 2014, according to the release.
