Brisk e-BusinessMay 9, 2014
In 1996, an IBM marketing team coined the term “e-business,” referring to a company’s electronic commerce in the age of a blossoming online world. Nearly two decades later, Baylor University is bringing the online world into its renowned business classroom.
Beginning this May, Baylor’s MBA program is available fully online. The 12-month program provides students with the superior theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to succeed in today’s global business environment.
“Our top priority is to develop accomplished leaders with integrity and purpose,” said Terry Maness, DBA, dean of Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business. “Our culture champions lifelong learning, highly regarded scholarship, and service to others. This exciting initiative allows us to extend that culture and provide even more students with a solid foundation for their business pursuits.”
Baylor faculty members teach the courses, and program graduates will be connected to the University’s alumni network. Developing the MBA program for online courses allows Baylor to reach a broader range of participants, a goal that has been realized in other programs such as the University’s Executive MBA.
Academic Partnerships (AP), one of the world’s largest representatives of online learning, has created an online format of Baylor’s MBA program, which is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Additionally, AP will assist in student recruitment and retention.
