The College of Business at Colorado State University knows professionals like you require the flexibility to meet the demands of your work and personal life. As a result, its MBA Programs provide tools to help you advance your career without putting your job or family on hold.
The MBA programs teach you to think analytically and immediately apply what you learn in the classroom to real challenges within your organization – abilities that become second nature as you progress through the curriculum. Consequently, you are able to interact more effectively with a range of business units and work outside your specific area of expertise to help your organization meet its goals and objectives.
Colorado State University MBA Programs are accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), the premier accrediting organization for business schools worldwide. You can pursue your MBA through the College of Business’ Distance MBA Program or Professional MBA Program.
The Distance MBA Program is the US's oldest and the first to be accredited by AACSB International. Colorado State University set the standard for distance MBA delivery technology, developing a sophisticated communications network that connects its Distance MBA students to one another and to College of Business Professional MBA students and faculty.
Distance MBA students around the globe – U.S. military personnel in the Middle East, managers in Europe or marketers in Canada – readily access course material and complete team projects. Professional MBA Program lectures and classroom dynamics are filmed, recorded to DVDs and sent to Distance MBA students the following morning. The mixed-media DVDs fully engage these students in the MBA experience. Additionally, you can supplement your access to lecture content through video streaming – allowing you to experience the full classroom dynamic within hours.
How is the Distance MBA Program different from the on-campus Professional MBA Program? The difference is delivery. MBA courses are filmed and recorded to DVDs. Every week classes are in session, you receive a DVD of each course you are taking. You see, hear and feel part of all classroom activity, including lectures, student questions, discussions, PowerPoint® presentations and SMART Board™ notes. To further enhance your sense of classroom involvement, the College of Business has introduced a VOIP communications tool that enables small groups to work simultaneously on a single document.
Professional MBA students participate in a face-to-face program in Fort Collins, which attracts candidates from Northern Colorado and from a wide range of countries. The diversity of students’ nationalities, backgrounds and functional areas enriches classroom discussions and provides multicultural viewpoints and practices.
The Professional MBA Program increases your competency in the functional areas of business, encourages team building and addresses high-priority management issues. To achieve these objectives, it employs solid academic models, business case studies and best operating practices.
No matter what career path you are pursuing – engineering, manufacturing, medicine, science or technology – you can leverage your MBA degree and business skills for professional advancement and development. Visit www.CSUmba.com for additional information or call 800 491-4622, ext 1.
