Mexico's EGADE Business School has announced plans to launch an Online MBA program.
In the new Online MBA program, students will learn through weekly, live classes—taught in English—delivered through an online platform. Students will also have the opportunity to attend in-person immersion experiences at one of the EGADE centers located throughout the Americas.
While many business schools in other parts of the world have launched Online MBA programs in recent years, business schools in Latin America have been somewhat behind the curve. Indeed, only a handful of Latin America schools with accreditation from AMBA, EQUIS, or AACSB currently offer Online MBAs. These include, for example, Rio de Janeiro's Ibmec, which offers an online Executive MBA in Portueguese; Peru's CENTRUM Catolica, which offers a Virtual International Managerial MBA; and Fundação Getulio Vargas, which offers an Online MBA.
EGADE Business School is triple-accredited; meaning, it has accreditations from the three main international MBA accreditation organizations (AMBA, EQUIS, and AACSB).
EGADE's new Online MBA is set to launch in the fall. No other practical details—such as course content, admissions deadlines, tuition and program length—have been announced. Read more on EGADE's news release announcing the launch of the new Online MBA.
