In the era of high-interest school loans and six-figure education debt, many working adults feel stuck in their positions, unable to continue their education and move forward in their career. Luckily, Gardner-Webb University is working to dispel this fear with their new 10-month MBA program for under $20,000.
What can you do with an MBA?
An MBA, or Master of Business Administration degree, is geared toward preparing students for leadership roles in the professional sphere. It is also a highly sought-after qualification for government positions (and, of course, those often come with great benefits!).
Graduates of Gardner-Webb University’s traditional MBA program have experienced success in a wide variety of fields. They’ve gone on to become Chief Executive Officers, Chief Financial Officers, administrators of healthcare systems, regional marketing executives, directors of human resources and more.
While Gardner-Webb has experienced tremendous success with this degree program, the University found that an MBA could be even more accessible to those of us already in the professional world.
Innovating the program
Already the institution with the highest percentage of online students in North Carolina, Gardner-Webb University is no stranger to creating coursework for remote learners. The new MBA program is designed to be completed in only 10 months rather than the two-year program available at most schools.
Competitively priced at $19,800, the 10-month MBA program consists of two courses per eight-week term, with the full 10 courses totaling 30 credit hours. Classes emphasize the application of managerial skills rather than simply relying on theory. Leaders of industry are scheduled to speak to the students, who also engage in service activities, business simulations and in-depth projects.
Gardner-Webb is dedicated to keeping its classes relatively small so that professors and students can develop a good relationship, and this is no different in its online courses. If you’re interested in boosting your resumé and expanding your mind through the 10-month MBA program, make sure to sign up now while seats are available!
You can apply for the new 10-month MBA course here. There has never been a better time to pursue your education and self-improvement — especially now that Gardner-Webb has a program you can fit into your working lifestyle, can be completed within a year and costs less than $20,000.
