Bluffton University will begin offering an accelerated 12-month Leadership Master of Business Administration program starting in August. The program will complement Bluffton’s 24-month Leadership MBA program that has a 15-year history.
“Organizations are in need of individuals with strong communication, analytical and leadership skill sets,” says Melissa Green, director of graduate programs in business. “This program was designed to enhance the development of professionals who want to shine in today’s fast-paced environment. With leadership as a core component, individuals will learn how to solve the tough challenges facing today’s business world while leading with confidence.”
Students will pursue a leadership track of study and can elect to add concentrations in accounting and financial management or health care management to tailor the programs to fit their career goals.
MBA classes are offered via Zoom technology, which allows students to connect with their classmates and professors in a virtual classroom.
“Bluffton’s MBA program is designed to fit your lifestyle. Because the courses are offered through videoconferencing, MBA students experience easy access to Bluffton’s resources virtually anywhere in the world,” says Green. “Another benefit of the technology is that students form real connections with the other professionals earning their MBA and develop a built-in network of professional contacts that carries them beyond the program.”
