Quality Education

The MBA degree provides graduates with the educational background and professional competencies needed to secure administrative or managerial positions in a variety of public sector and non-profit organizations or as preparation for doctoral study and careers in teaching and research.

Outstanding Faculty

The faculty of the Department of Business Administration is composed of full-time faculty who have earned doctorates from major universities, and adjunct faculty, many of whom are practicing experts in their areas of specialization.

Flexible yet Interactive

For many students the choice of location to further their educational objectives remains restricted. The demands of career, family, and scheduling logistics imposed by a fixed time and place do not permit them to make educational choices uninfluenced by distance.

The College of Business Administration and Public Policy offers the MBA degree in an interactive online mode to afford an anywhere, anytime alternative to traditional classroom instruction. This asynchronous learning model reproduces the basic elements of a classroom teaching experience outside of the classroom. As such, the MBA Online program incorporates the traditional classroom components of a teaching faculty member, course materials, and the shared experiences of a group of classmates. These elements are mediated electronically outside of the campus, outside of the classroom, and without the necessity for the student to be at a fixed place at a fixed time.

Classes begin and end on specific dates and are taught by a faculty member who interacts with individuals through email or group conferencing software. Interaction with faculty and among students is regular and continuous. Most classes in the MBA Online program combine text materials, lecture videos, case studies, threaded discussions, interactive net meetings, and video conferencing.

The MBA Campus program offers students the flexibility to purse educational goals while maintaining their career responsibilities. The Campus program offers courses in the evenings two times a week.
