New blended program to include classroom-based residencies

Carnegie Mellon's Tepper School of Business has redesigned its online MBA program to feature a mix of classroom-based and distance learning courses, according to a Tepper press release.

In the new blended MBA format, students and faculty will meet roughly once every seven weeks for long weekends to go over course materials. During the rest of the course, students engage the material through live-video lectures and other distance learning components.

The redesigned program, called the "FlexMBA," launches next fall and will take 32 months to complete.

For more information, please see the Tepper news release announcing the launch of the redesigned online MBA program, or watch the video below.
