Now branded [email protected], program will integrate face-to-face classes

Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management has announced some changes to its online MBA program.

The online program, which previously was known as the "iMBA program" will now be branded "[email protected]."

Among other changes, the program now features face-to-face weekly lectures, delivered live by Syracuse professors. Other course content will be delivered through videos, quizzes, and additional interactive features. Students will be able to access course material either online or offline, through a computer as well as through mobile apps.

The [email protected] program will also feature three-day long residency sessions "in cities that are major centers of international business as well as on the Syracuse University campus in Central New York for students to foster a connection to the university," according to a statement from the school.

The entire program is 54 credits, delivered over 12-week long semesters.

Other information, such as core and elective curriculum offerings, was not immediately available on the school's program website.

The program will launch in January 2015. Applications will open in June.

The Whitman School of Management is accredited by AACSB. This year, the iMBA program was ranked ninth in the Financial Times' inaugural Online MBA Ranking, which ranked programs based on salary increase, among other metrics. Other US-based online MBA programs listed in the ranking include offerings from the following business schools:

  • Indiana University - Kelley

  • Arizona State University - Carey
  • Northeastern University - D'Amore-McKim
  • University of Nebraska - Lincoln
