The University of Texas at Tyler announced on Jan. 7 that it will now offer an accelerated online MBA in marketing.
The school is currently accepting applications for the new program, which can be completed entirely online and will be offered six times per year.
The program focuses on business-to-business and business-to-consumer marketing, according to a press release from the school.
"This program is designed to position our graduates to be relevant in the service-driven economy," says Dr. Krist Swimberghe, Chair of the Department of Management and Marketing and Associate Professor of Marketing at UT Tyler's College of Business and Technology, in a press release. "Our students will be exposed to a tool kit that allows them to take advantage of career opportunities in diverse industries ranging from healthcare and hospitality to banking and retailing."
The new MBA can be completed in 12 months, according to the school, although the average completion time is 18 to 24 months.
