Delivering a Bold New Program.

"The choice of courses offered where what I was looking for, and the format they are being provided in, was a big factor in my decision. This format is face-to-face, synchronous, or asynchronous. It allows those who may not be able to make it on campus to zoom in from home or watch a lecture later. It’s really a big advantage for post-graduate students."

Brittany Barry, MBA 2020



"Employees no longer have to work at their employer’s place of business, or in teams that meet in a conference room. This program acknowledges this change in how we conduct business, and provides a high-level, rigorous curriculum that utilizes various modes of communication. It offers valuable experience in teamwork while giving students opportunities to apply their leadership skills. All of this is done while providing the ultimate flexibility for the student while delivering a bold new program."
