St. Cloud State University Announces Online MBA

Program will target parents and busy professionals who want to obtain an MBA without dropping everything for two years.

St. Cloud State University has announced that it will offer a new online-only MBA program.

The university, which is located in St. Cloud, Minnesota, is geared towards parents, busy professionals, or travelers who don't want to or can't leave the workforce for two years to commit to a full-time in-person MBA program.

The number of online MBA programs has exploded in the past five years. Just this past fall, the University of Miami, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of Kansas, the University of Southern California, and William and Mary all rolled out new online programs. At the same time, employer perception of online programs has improved, as more and more top 20 MBA programs have implemented online programs. 

St. Cloud's program will allow students to take classes whenever they want, while promoting networking and camaraderie by encouraging students to chat online and post on discussion boards. St. Cloud will accept between 20 and 25 students into its online cohorts, thus mimicking the cohort structure that in-person full-time MBAs use.
