Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Today, the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business announced a major new addition to their MBA programs with the launch of a new online Masters of Business Administration (MBA) degree. The MBA Online program (http://www.utahmba.com) will give students the opportunity to pursue a University of Utah MBA in a convenient, interactive, on-demand format.

The new program will require the same demanding application standards and will be taught by the same world-renowned faculty as the University’s other highly ranked MBA programs.

"We are very excited to launch the MBA Online program here at the U," said University of Utah President David W. Pershing. "Our part-time MBA programs have consistently ranked among the top 10 programs in the West, and as equally impressive, in the top 40 in the entire U.S. The MBA Online program will provide students who can’t attend traditional on-campus courses the opportunity to earn a degree from our prestigious business school off campus."

The MBA Online program will provide a highly interactive learning experience for students. Each course will combine on-demand; multi-media enhanced lectures and team projects, with in-depth discussions between students and faculty using video conferencing and other online multimedia forums.

"The introduction of our new MBA Online program shows that we understand how important choice is to our students," said David Eccles School of Business Dean, Taylor Randall. "The incredible opportunities provided by evolving technology will allow our faculty to work and interact with students in a new way, no matter where they are in the world. As students move from a traditional classroom environment into the online world, we are committed to providing the same world-class instruction and forward-thinking education for them as we do for the students here on the University of Utah campus."

The MBA Online program adds another MBA option to the University of Utah’s existing suite of Full-Time, Professional and Executive MBA programs.

"The business world and life in general seem to get busier and more demanding every day," said Brad Vierig, Associate Dean of Part-Time MBA Programs at the David Eccles School of Business. "Our new MBA Online program offers students the ability to manage their challenging work and personal schedules without having to sacrifice their education."

The MBA Online program is now accepting applications for Fall 2014. Spring and summer semester dates and applications are also available. Information can be found at http://www.utahmba.com or by calling 801-587-8870.
