The Paul R. Carter College of Business Administration announces the launch of an enhanced MBA program in the Harding University Graduate School of Business.
Now fully online, the Harding Master of Business Administration program has been re-engineered to deliver a top-notch, Christ-centered curriculum accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Structured with working professionals in mind, the online format allows for increased flexibility and maximum engagement with other participants in the online environment. Students can log on to complete coursework when it is most convenient for them and join synchronous events for real-time interaction with instructors and classmates. Additionally, the University has reduced the per-hour cost of the program to make it accessible to more students seeking an MBA from a high-quality institution.
Courses are taught by award-winning faculty from the University’s College of Business Administration who also provide students with one-to-one academic advising and support.
“The revamped MBA benefits students by providing certified, rigorous coursework with the flexibility to attend classes wherever they are and finish at their own pace,” said Dr. Allen Frazier, dean of the college. “Additionally, we will be able to tailor specialized classes and offerings to specific interests such as health care, logistics and entrepreneurship.”
The Harding MBA program is built on a master schedule platform that reflects course availability for up to five years. This allows students to plan their program track from start to finish, and with the eight-week block scheduling, they may choose to complete the MBA program in as little as 18 months.
MBA candidates may enter the program in a cohort, a group of students who have committed to completing the program on the same schedule track. This cohort structure offers a support network of fellow students who are going through courses together. Students in cohorts are more likely to stay on track and finish their MBA on schedule. Additionally, when at least eight students commit to complete a cohort track together, all will receive a tuition discount for the duration of the program.
ACBSP is an international council in more than 50 countries accrediting business education programs at the associate, baccalaureate, master’s and doctorate degree levels worldwide since 1988.
