The University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business and Towson University's College of Business and Economics have announced that their jointly-offered MBA program has been redesigned.
The program, which is aimed at working professionals, now offers shorter, seven-week long class sessions, in addition to classes delivered over a standard 15-week semester.
Six seven-week long sessions and two 15-week sessions are offered per year. Students can begin taking classes at the beginning of any session, meaning there are multiple entry points per semester.
Classes can be taken on either school's campus, or online.
The schools redesigned the MBA program with input from the Baltimore business community, program alumni, and current students. "Today, students—especially working professionals—want faster, 'bite-sized' courses delivered in a multiple-front format," according to the school.
The program offers nine concentrations:
- Health Care Management
- Human Resource Management
- International Business
- Leadership and Organizational Learning
- Management Information Systems
- Public Sector Management
The redesigned program will launch this August.
The UB/Towson MBA program is accredited by AACSB International. Baltimore is also home to Morgan State University, which offers an AACSB-accredited MBA program aimed at working professionals, as well as Johns Hopkins' Carey Business School, which offers a full-time Global MBA program, among others.
