PORTALES — Eastern New Mexico University's College of Business has received accreditation for the new MBA Online program from the Higher Learning Commission. "The MBA online program is designed for a working adult to do this program on a part-time basis," says Dr. Lee Weyant, assistant professor of management/graduate coordinator.
The program, which consists of 33 credit hours, breaks down to 24 credit hours of core business classes and nine credit hours of business electives. Dr. Weyant says that course content will be the same as taught in the classrooms, by the same Eastern staff. "This program can be done in two and a half to three years part-time," says Dr. Weyant. "If you went to a larger school, such as Harvard, it would be a full-time program with full-time costs," added Dr. Weyant.
ENMU's College of Business plans a controlled growth to the program by beginning it in-state, then expanding it nationwide.
