MVNU's New 4+1 MBA Program Provides Opportunity and Expediency
MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - Mount Vernon Nazarene University's Jetter School of Business will offer
a 4+1 MBA program to traditional undergraduate students this fall. An excellent opportunity regardless of the student's major, those who qualify will have the opportunity to earn their chosen bachelor degree and the Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) in just five academic years, giving them a competitive advantage in the job market.
The 4+1 MBA program is campus-based and geared toward the traditional student who welcomes the challenge to prepare for the future in a unique way. MBA students will develop their knowledge and understanding of organizational management and leadership while strengthening their skills in economics, finance, strategic planning, customer service, and other areas of business.
Students who enroll in the 4+1 MBA program will spend four years at the undergraduate level of study, followed by taking graduate-level courses during their senior year that will meet the undergraduate elective and graduate program requirements. At the end of their senior year, the students will be awarded their undergraduate degrees. Following the fourth year, students will be enrolled in the graduate business program and will complete the MBA degree in just one year.
While this program is not for everyone, Mount Vernon Nazarene University believes that through a combined undergraduate program and graduate business course of study, students will enter today's marketplace with a sound preparation to meet the demands of the job market. Dr. Kevin Hughes, Associate Dean of the Jetter School of Business, notes,
"This program creates wider career opportunities for all our students. While the MBA provides you with the business knowledge and skills to succeed, we believe this combination of an undergraduate degree with an MBA can provide a student with a competitive advantage when pursuing a career in his or her chosen field."
