Kevin Miles, Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) Student

“As a serial entrepreneur, I feel I have gained a lot of knowledge from my everyday business experiences. What’s taken that knowledge a step further is having the opportunity to exchange ideas with classmates as well as reading and writing research articles—it’s given me a better perspective. The interactions with the instructors and students have really made a difference and have helped me solve problems more creatively than I had previously.”

“As I was taking the Foundation course for business, I realized that Walden University’s Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) program would have a major impact on how I work in both my government and nonprofit leadership positions. I have been able to take the knowledge in my global-supply course and implement forecasting in the federal government’s budgeting process.

Greg Banks, Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) Student

“Ten years ago, when I was in my mid-40s, I decided not to retire but to pursue a second career in teaching and coaching. I left Kraft Foods as the vice president of customer business operations at age 50 and am now well into a second career—with no plans to retire. My new career as a business and economics specialist/instructor at a local college allows me to make a difference in my community. I enjoy working with the students and watching them progress through courses. Two teachers had a significant impact on my life and made me aware of the possibilities and savoring a challenge. I hope to follow in their footsteps. My courses at Walden University have clearly improved my teaching skills from both a methods and content perspective.”

Mr. Banks represented Walden at the 2011 World Business Forum, an annual international event that brings together some of the world’s most innovative leaders in business. Learn more about his experience in an article featured on Biz570.com.

“I am a changed woman. My Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Walden University opened doors, and pursuing the Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) has led me to my dream consulting position with a virtual company. Walden gave me an opportunity to look at the world through different lenses and made a tremendous difference in my life. ”

 

 

Alvin S. Perry, Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) Student

“Walden University’s Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) program is teaching me how to become a better researcher. I am learning how to really research issues and find quality peer-reviewed resources that provide fact-based information and lead to valuable solutions.”

 

 

Nelson L. Mellitz, Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) Student

“It’s extremely rewarding to reflect on how my knowledge increases after completing each course at Walden University. Some of my staff and even my manager have told me they are amazed at the improvement in my leadership and writing abilities since starting the D.B.A. program.”

Steven M. Brown

Where I Live: Hanover, Pa.

Program of Study: Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) with a specialization in Leadership

Estimated Graduation Date: 2013

My Current Position: Chief of the Navigation Branch Operations Division of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and program director of the nonprofit Friends of Amazing Kids

My Career Goals: In the long term, I plan to continue my career as a civilian leader in the federal government and work toward completing my career in the Senior Executive Service. I will grow the nonprofit into a fully functional organization that serves families living with autism. I also plan to start a consulting firm to help businesses develop junior leaders into the leaders of tomorrow.       

The Walden Experience

Why I Chose Walden: I chose Walden because it offers me the option to stay close to my family while still connecting with a network of professionals. Second, Walden offers a course-based program that keeps me on schedule and helps me gain a better understanding of what is expected from me.

What I Like Most About Walden: The best thing about Walden is that you learn how to be a scholar-practitioner. I take what I learn in the online classrooms and apply it in my current positions.

The Moment I Knew Walden Was the Perfect Fit For Me: I knew that Walden was perfect for me after I attended my first residency. It helped prepare me for what is to come during the doctoral study process. D.B.A. faculty members sat down, one-on-one, with me to help me develop research problem statements and orient me to Walden’s online resources.

The D.B.A. Experience

Why I Chose My Program: With more than a decade in the military and experience in manufacturing, I felt I needed to broaden my educational background. Earning a doctoral degree in business opens my options to work in government and for-profit and nonprofit businesses. Walden is giving me the tools to study my organization and learn how it operates globally.

What I’ve Learned So Far: During my global supply chain management course, I learned how to forecast and apply my knowledge to dredging operations. The knowledge I gain from the marketing management course will help me finalize my nonprofit’s business plan, and the business plan will shape the way it grows.

What I Like Most About the Program: I like the fact that the program is flexible for any lifestyle.

Advice I Would Give to New Students: Complete your degree. Listen to the professors, learn APA style, and use all of the Walden online resources in the Writing Center.

The Impact I Hope To Have On My Community: I hope to make a difference in the working relationships between government agencies—and improve dredging operations in the Chesapeake Bay. I also hope to grow a sustainable nonprofit organization to promote autism awareness, raise money for local organizations, provide services to people with autism, and establish a network of support to families and people living with autism.  

Why I Refer: I refer people to Walden because it has helped me make a difference in my community. Individuals who want to make a difference through social change should attend Walden University.

Amy Gajewski

Where I Live: Wausau, Wis.

Program of Study and Specialization: Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.) with a specialization in Marketing

Subject of My Doctoral Study: Researching marketing strategies that effectively increase conversion in the Facebook storefront

Estimated Graduation Date: 2013

My Current Position: Marketing manager for Ministry Health Care and adjunct instructor for University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and Northcentral Technical College in Wausau

My Career Goals: To become a full-time marketing professor and to inspire my college students to pursue their passions in life

The Walden Experience

Why I Chose Walden: Walden’s commitment to social change is important to me. I strongly believe in giving back to the community in which I live. If I can give a little, the culmination of my efforts and other Walden students’ efforts result in something much greater for our communities.

What I Like Most About Walden: Walden University is more than taking classes and getting a degree. It is a life-changing experience. You’ll build relationships with classmates and faculty members through a supportive classroom environment and through residencies. The D.B.A. program has challenged me to grow as a person, to strive for excellence in all areas of my life, and to keep looking for solutions when issues at work may arise. It has taught me that my personal potential and possibilities are limitless.

The Moment I Knew Walden Was the Perfect Fit for Me: I really enjoy the collaboration and sense of community that I’ve built with my classmates. They offer a great support system.

The D.B.A. Program Experience

Why I Chose My Program: Marketing is my specialization and is a topic I am passionate about. I have 18 years of marketing experience, including product development, consumer research, strategic planning, branding and rebranding campaigns, social media marketing, e-commerce marketing, and advertising. I’ve been an adjunct marketing instructor for almost 10 years, and I want to eventually teach full time at the college level, which is why I decided to pursue my D.B.A.

What I’ve Learned So Far: This degree program has been a life-changing experience. I have learned from my classmates and their life experiences. Throughout the coursework, we have shared challenges with different issues we faced at work and ideas for resolution. I have been able to look at situations from a broader point of view and come up with multiple solutions when facing a complex business problem. The D.B.A. program has challenged me to grow as a person and strive for excellence in all areas of my life.

How I Balance Family, Work, and Studies: Working three jobs while earning my D.B.A. has been a challenge. I set daily and weekly goals for what I need to accomplish with writing my doctoral study. To stay on task, I make appointments with myself and have dedicated time each day to work on my studies. Whether it is 10 minutes or a five-hour block, I make sure I am connected to my studies each day.

How I’ve Applied My New Skills to My Current Career: In my position at Ministry Health Care, I have taken on the role of department expert when it comes to social media and Web marketing. I am able to bring the latest trends to my organization and grow our organization’s awareness throughout our service area. As an adjunct instructor and a member of a marketing advisory committee at the college, I am creating a social media class curriculum that will be able to be taught online and in person beginning in summer 2012. I am also consulting for a local bridal store to develop an online strategy, which includes building a commerce-ready website, increasing social media presences, and driving sales and business success.

The Impact I Hope to Have on My Community: Since enrolling in Walden, I have brought what I’ve learned into the college classrooms where I teach marketing. I have integrated details into my lectures that include the importance of not just planning and implementing marketing strategies but that also will help my students build a culture in their future organizations that says “yes” to service to the community, is kind to our environment, and supports philanthropic activities whenever possible. Upon graduation, I hope to volunteer in my local community as an advisor to small businesses to assist them with marketing strategies that will help them grow and succeed.
