Overview

The Master of Business Administration program will address the ethical, moral, and philosophical issues related to management and business leadership in a direct and meaningful approach. The program is uniquely designed to intertwine a traditional MBA curriculum with "soft skills" and will cover "the human side of management." The program goals and objectives reflect an emphasis on critical thinking, practice-based creation and interpretation of business data, and comprehensive decision making that considers all information available and all aspects of the impact of decisions.

Learners who complete the program will gain additional and practical expertise in their profession while engaging in intellectual discourse with peers and experts that will prepare the participants to be the leaders of dialog in the business world.

What kind of computer skills and access do I need?

In order to participate in WebCT classes, individuals must possess basic computer skills such as word processing, have the ability to send and receive emails and attachments, download files, and be familiar with searching the Internet.

The minimum configuration is a Pentium III, 667MHZ, 128 meg of RAM. The standard (preferred) configuration is a Pentium IV, 2 GHZ, 256 meg of RAM. If you are on campus, you would need a network card. If you are accessessing course materials from off campus, a "broadband" Internet connection such as DSL or cable is highly preferred. A "dial up" line with a 56K modem may not be adequate. Macintosh systems are not supported. Current versions of Internet Explorer and Netscape are supported.

What types of Financial Aid are available to me?

In order to be considered for financial assistance, a student must be enrolled for a minimum of six (6) credits per semester. Students with a bachelor’s degree are not eligible for federal or state grant money. However, federal loan money is available.

How does employer reimbursement or payment work?

A tuition reimbursement letter stating the terms of the benefit from the employer must be on file prior to registration. This payment plan permits tuition and fees to be paid up to 30 days after the issuance of grades instead of at the time of registration. It is the responsibility of the student, not the employer, to ensure that payment is made. Students receiving only partial tuition benefits must make arrangements to pay the costs that are not covered by the employer at the time of registration.
