Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 24, 2005
On the heels of announcing its accreditation, American Graduate School of Management (AGSM), the premier online management university, today announced the launch of its Accelerated MBA Program. The program, designed for mid-career professionals, can be completed in as few as 14 months. With this announcement, AGSM will also begin offering open enrollment to enable AGSM Accelerated MBA and Executive MBA students to begin their studies on any day they are ready to start.
The Accelerated MBA program delivers a well-rounded curriculum that focuses on developing the leadership, decision making, and communication skills necessary to thrive in todayÂs digital, global economy. It incorporates best practice management concepts, regular online collaboration with faculty and students, and the use of cases and interactive exercises into the student's work.
AGSM Accelerated MBA Program students can choose to enroll in courses on either an open enrollment basis (at their convenience) or together with a regularly-scheduled class cohort group. Students choosing the open enrollment option study independently, with ongoing faculty interaction, then join regularly-scheduled class cohort groups in subsequent courses.
ÂFrom our research of the adult education market, the Accelerated MBA program uniquely answers the demands of the busy professional,Â said Mary Adams, AGSM President. ÂThe flexibility of online delivery and the accelerated pace further enables our students to learn in ways that best fit their lives and goals.Â
As with all AGSM programs, students learn from highly qualified faculty with both academic and industry experience, and use a unique blend of real-time interactive virtual classroom sessions and various self-paced learning modules. In addition, students access a broad set of learning and career development tools - among them a customized online publication (Journal of Business Strategy; http://www.journalofbusinessstrategy.com), an online current topics speaker series, and the CareerLeaderTM career development toolset. Students in the program take ten, four-credit, seven-week courses.
