Get a DBA or PHD only if u are going along the academia line, or like mentioned, R&D.
The corporate world do not have a place for a DBA, despite what schools advertised.
I have one and I had to hide it from my resume, coz I realise that it was the one that is causing me not being able to get jobs, as my headhunters found out from the hiring HRs, that no one in the management level who just have bachelor or masters will want to hire a DBA to be their staff.
I only show my DBA when I am doing freelance consultancy work for firms, and that is only after 20yrs of solid experience that gets me the deals, and not my DBA.
