Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
The Johns Hopkins Carey Business School is expanding its Flexible Master of Business Administration degree program with the addition of new online courses. Beginning in the fall of 2015, Flexible MBA students will have the option of pursuing their degree online, in the classroom, or a combination of both.
“The Flexible MBA is geared for the part-time student. Adding online courses will give these students greater choice in pursuing their business education,” said Kevin Frick, PhD, vice dean for education at the Carey Business School. “Online courses also make our program accessible to students who were previously unable to earn a Johns Hopkins degree because of time or distance, and who are potentially anywhere in the world.”
The Flexible MBA is a 54-credit degree program typically completed over three academic years. However, students have the flexibility to take up to six years to finish the program if needed.
The new online Flexible MBA option will begin with two core degree courses in the fall of 2015, Business Communication and Statistical Analysis. New courses covering the Flexible MBA curriculum will be added over time. Students enrolled in the online Flexible MBA program will also be required to take three weekend residency courses to complete their degree. These weekend residency courses will be held at the Carey Business School’s Harbor East campus in Baltimore, Md.
Current Flexible MBA students will eventually have the option of taking online courses in conjunction with their classroom course work once the online content is available.
In May 2014, the Carey Business School launched an online Certificate in the Business of Health Care. The online certificate is offered in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University schools of medicine, nursing, and public health.
