Goldey-Beacom College has announced that W. Daniel Young, Ph.D. has been appointed as Director of the newly created Doctor of Business Administration program. Responsible for fulfilling the vision of the program, he will create doctoral courses, recruit faculty and students, manage the curriculum, comprehensive exam and the dissertation processes as well as linking the program to the state and regional communities. The College’s new program will be unique in the field of doctoral studies, including partnerships with several corporations and governmental agencies to solve business problems through student coursework. This stands in stark contrast to other DBA programs, which may simply use textbooks and past case studies to achieve learning goals and objectives.

He brings strong academic experience to this new post, most recently as an assistant professor who was responsible for developing Wilmington University’s first online Doctor of Business Administration course.

As a former financial advisor, Dr. Young served a base of more than 200 clients representing more than $20 million in assets. He also founded Young Consulting Group, a boutique marketing company tailored to deploying strategies to attract millennials and Generation Z to participate in nonprofit donating and board service.
Dr. Young holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing from the University of Delaware; a Master’s degree of Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing and Finance, also from the University of Delaware.
