MNU Announces Fully Online MBA

New this fall at MNU is a fully online MBA program. The university has offered an MBA program for nearly 30 years, but until now all classes were held on site in Olathe or Liberty. Now students who want to earn the credential at a distance can do so. Classes begin August 24, 2015.

According to Dr. Mark Ford, MNU vice provost, the online MBA blends the latest management theory with practical application. In addition, this program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), a leading specialized accreditation association for business education supporting, celebrating, and rewarding teaching excellence.

Although classes are online, the program is taught cohort style, meaning students take courses with the same group of colleagues throughout. The program requires 36 credit hours which are completed in 24 months.

“Students in this program broaden their knowledge in leadership, management and business strategy,” Ford says. “The fact they can do this at any time  in the location of their choice makes it highly convenient and achievable.”

In addition, Ford says the cost of the program is less per credit hour than most other MBA programs in the Kansas City Metro. Financial aid is available as well as a payment plan provided by the university. Several area organizations have formed partnerships with MNU which provides discounts for their employees’ tuition.

To qualify for admission students should have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university and a minimum GPA of 3.0 or above in last 60 hours of undergraduate coursework.
