Online MBA debuts at U of M

Beginning this fall, the University of Memphis will offer the master of business administration degree online. The online MBA program is designed for busy professionals whose schedule or location makes it difficult to attend classes in person at the Fogelman College of Business & Economics.

The new, fully internationalized curriculum will utilize real-time chat, AV-enhanced PowerPoints, podcasts, blogs, threaded discussion boards and Wiki collaboration tools. The program provides a strategic understanding of today’s business problems and the latest knowledge, best practices and tools to solve those problems.

The online MBA is a 33-credit-hour program that consists of a 30 credit-hour core (common to all of the University’s MBA programs) plus one three-credit-hour elective. It features two on-campus residency sessions: creativity and innovation, and leadership and team-building. These courses are better suited to face-to-face interaction rather than online, and they are taught over a three-day period in the week before the fall semester.

“The Fogelman College of Business & Economics is tremendously excited to offer our new online MBA,” said Dr. Gregory Boller, director of MBA programs. “The business community and prospective students across the region have been eagerly awaiting our rollout of an innovative global business-focused online MBA.”
