The Kelce College of Business is expanding the reach of one of its most popular programs thanks to a new agreement with online education service provider, Academic Partnerships. The new program will allow students to earn their MBA completely online in as little as 12 months.

The structure differs from the university’s traditional MBA, in that it is designed specifically for working professionals.

“It’s an accelerated program with seven-week courses, which makes it perfect for those who want to advance their career but whose schedule won’t allow them to attend traditional classes on campus,” said Paul Grimes, dean of the Kelce College of Business. “Academic Partnerships manages the online enrollment while our professors deliver the academic instruction. Your MBA will now be as close as your computer.”

The seven-week course design also allows students to begin their program at multiple points during a year.

“You will now have five opportunities to begin your MBA rather than the traditional two,” said Grimes. “The added flexibility really fits the working schedule of today’s professionals.”

Enrollment for the online MBA will begin this fall with classes starting Spring 2019.
