It’s not too late to apply in the new Master of Business Administration program! The deadline is December 21 with online classes beginning January 7, 2008.
"We are excited about the startup,” said Bryce Bernard, dean of business. “It looks like we are going to have a good group of students starting in January. They come from a variety of backgrounds—high school business teacher, engineers, a variety of business positions—and include several alumni.” Not surprising, since alumni were among the ones asking to start such a program, as Bernard indicated last summer.
Aimed at working Christian adults, the MBA program is convenient and flexible. Its online format allows students to work from home when the time is right for them. They can finish the program in as little as 16 months or progress at a slower pace. And they can live anywhere in the world! Coming to Corban’s campus is not a requirement.
Students take 36 credit hours of coursework, with 27 as common core courses and nine from a program track of their choice. The Non-Profit Management Track focuses on working with non-profit agencies, governmental units, church organizations, and para-church organizations. The Management Elective Track offers a broader range of electives and is designed to meet a variety of educational and professional goals.
Courses are taken one at a time, lasting five weeks. Students can enroll in as many as three per semester. Beginning in January, the first course will be “Biblical Leadership and Ethics,” followed by “Economic Analysis” and then “Human Resource Management.”
