University of Utah Announces New Online MBA Program

The new online MBA will give students the opportunity to pursue their degree in a convenient, interactive and on-demand format.

Jan. 15, 2014 – Today, the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business announced a new addition to their programs with the launch of an online Masters of Business Administration degree. The MBA online program will give students the opportunity to pursue their degree in a convenient, interactive and on-demand format.

The new program will require the same demanding application standards and will be taught by the same world-renowned faculty as the U’s other highly ranked MBA programs.

“We are very excited to launch the online program,” said David W. Pershing, president of the University of Utah. “Our part-time MBA programs have consistently ranked among the top 10 programs in the West, and as equally impressive, in the top 40 in the entire U.S. The MBA online program will provide students who can’t attend traditional on-campus courses the opportunity to earn a degree from our prestigious business school off campus.”

The online program will provide a highly interactive learning experience for students. Each course will combine on-demand, multi-media enhanced lectures and team projects with in-depth discussions between students and faculty using video conferencing and other online multimedia forums.

“The introduction of our new online program shows that we understand how important choice is to our students,” said Taylor Randall, dean of the David Eccles School of Business. “The incredible opportunities provided by evolving technology will allow our faculty to work and interact with students in a new way, no matter where they are in the world. As students move from a traditional classroom environment into the online world, we are committed to providing the same world-class instruction and forward-thinking education for them as we do for the students here on the U campus.”

The online program adds another MBA option to the U’s existing suite of full-time, professional and executive MBA programs.

“The business world and life in general seem to get busier and more demanding every day,” said Brad Vierig, associate dean of part-time MBA programs at the David Eccles School of Business. “Our new online program offers students the ability to manage their challenging work and personal schedules without having to sacrifice their education.”

The MBA online program is now accepting applications for fall 2014. Spring and summer semester dates and applications are also available. Information can be found here or by calling 801-587-8870.
