      Thats not even an accredited university, nor an accredited title - you wont be eligible for postdoc anywhere with a degree mill title...

    Hi there,

    typically, a DBA is a professional doctorate program for people, who stay in business or teach at universities from time to time. It is not a program for postdoc or research programs. By contrast, the PhD qualifies for postdoc programs and an academic career.

    Hi everyone,

    Well, this may differ across countries, I think, so it could be better to take that into account.

    In the UK, for example, the DBA, which is a professional doctorate, is an academic "research" degree at the doctoral level (Level 8), the same level as the PhD (The "professional" distinction is in the "type of research" performed.).

    Therefore, there is nothing that could prevent a DBA holder going into post-doc research or even into a full academic career, formally, if that is what he or she wishes to do. This may not be the typical path for a DBA holder, but it is possible. There are many academics in the UK academia with professional doctorates, like the DBA, Dprof, etc. (Of course, with PhD being the most common doctorate for an academic career. )

    Best regards,
