Capella University is now launching a management education specialization in its online business management doctorate program, the school announced Aug. 8. The management education specialization is designed for students who hope to become college professors of business.
The management education specialization is part of a 120-quarter credit program requiring 13 core courses, five specialization courses, and eight elective courses, as well as a dissertation. Required core courses cover topics including: ethics and leadership in global environments; economics in global environments; the 21st-century organization; strategic management and practice; and management theory creation. Specialization courses cover higher education topics such as teaching adults, classroom assessment, management education and the practice of teaching, and higher education curriculum development.
While the program is primarily delivered through online coursework, it requires three four-day weekend experiences, which cost $1,495 each plus travel costs. Capella is based in Minneapolis.
Within its business management doctoral program, students can also specialize in accounting, finance, general business management, human resource management, information technology management, leadership, marketing, or project management. Capella also offers doctoral programs in information technology with four specializations and education with 10 specializations, and Doctor of Business Administration programs with 10 specializations.
Capella is regionally accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
