Expansion of Academic Programs for Fall 2018
| by Carol Best firstname.lastname@example.org
Students have more to choose from at MNU with nine new programs and three certificates launching this fall. The programs and majors have been created in response to market trends and in alignment with the mission of the university.
The Business 4+1 program allows highly-qualified traditional business administration undergraduates to get a head start on an MBA degree by taking three graduate courses during their senior year. These credits count toward the completion of both the Bachelor and the Master of Business Administration degrees, allowing the student to earn both in just five years.

Combining computer and information systems technology, this program features two ways to customize one’s studies in either software engineering or cyber security.
Provided entirely online, the CIS curriculum provides a foundation in technology and business. Students will learn to apply information technology tools and principles to improve business processes, design and implement new software, and/ or enter the growing field of cyber security.
MBA in Healthcare Management
This 30-month program can be accomplished in evening classes and/or online, featuring courses in emotional intelligence, mediation & conflict resolution and quality & regulation management, as well as advanced business courses.
