The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.
People who earn a PhD in business, economics and administration typically go on to teach in universities or perform statistical research for large organizations. Moreover, anyone with a PhD degree has the right to be addressed as "Dr."
