Students who want to earn a master’s of business administration (MBA) degree will soon have another option. The College of Business Administration at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will begin their new online MBA degree in spring 2012. The new degree has been approved by the Board of Regents of The Texas A&M University System.

 The new 30-credit MBA program will be taught exclusively online. It is designed to give students a broad practical understanding of business and the dynamic, global environment in which it operates, said Dr. Thomas Dock, dean of the College of Business Administration.

 “This new online program will allow our students to learn and network with other experienced professionals,” Dock said. “The program minimum of two years full-time experience requirement is designed to support experience being the basis for student team interaction and class assignments.”

 “Our new program allows students to continue their education and earn a master’s degree while keeping their full-time jobs,” said Dr. Steven Tallant, university president. “Students can keep their quality of life and improve it at the same time.”

 Dock said the new online program allows students to receive high-quality and challenging education without being bound by time and place.

In addition, the online program provides unparalleled flexibility for working professionals seeking to sharpen their business knowledge and expand their networking opportunities; provides students the ability to select from a wide variety of elective courses to complete their desired content learning breadth and depth; and allows students to interact freely with the faculty and their classmates throughout the program.

The 30 credit hours required to complete the course include six credits of core-focused courses, 12 credits of global-focused courses, three credits of managing technology courses and nine credits of elective courses. Most students will be able to complete the program in 30 months.

The previous traditional classroom program was phased out with the last of the students earning their MBAs during the recent summer commencement.

For more information on the new program, please call Dawn Hardin, executive director of the MBA Program & Distance Learning, at 361-593-3937.
