While I am still doing my research, I was under the impression that most professional doctorates did not have a dissertation requirement.
I've seen articles discussing professional degrees in business (like DBA, DM, and DL) that don't have a dissertation requirement, but I haven't actually found any yet. Then again, if they have a project or capstone that takes more than a year to complete then it might as well be the same thing.
Excluding online doctoral programs for occupational therapists, physical therapists, pharmacists etc.
who are looking to upgrade to a doctorate, I've only found a few of doctoral programs that don't require a dissertation or equivalent.
Maybe I'll just focus on a second masters and call it good. I believe the average length is over eight years now. I checked Uo P's website, and the DBA and DM require a dissertation.
Doctoral Programs Without Dissertation Customer Satisfaction Dissertation

Now if I could find something comparable for leadership/management/business or CS.
I found Uo P's DBA and DM programs which are professional degrees without dissertations, both at 62 credits @ 0 per credit, and its Uo P, so not the greatest reputation.
Even if you knock off two years for having a master's degree, that's still six years. I checked Uo P's website, and the DBA and DM require a dissertation.
If I had to guess, I would say that 99% of the online professional doctorates require a dissertation, applied research project, or a capstone that takes almost as long as a dissertation. I believe the average length is over eight years now. I checked Uo P's website, and the DBA and DM require a dissertation.
