The College of Business offers a complete MBA program that is available exclusively via the Internet or can combine online courses with campus courses to meet degree requirements. Students are able to take every course required for graduation online. The online courses are the same that on-campus students must take, but feature the convenience of learning from home at any time of the day. Students that do not want to complete their course work exclusively online are welcome to complete courses on campus in addition to the online mode. The MBA program is generally designed for completion within a two-year period, although a few students complete the program in as little as 12-18 months while others that work full-time may work on degree requirements for three or more years. Admission and academic credit consideration may be provided for excellence in previous academic program, GMAT performance, career progression in industry and/or in military service.
