BSU offering online MBA in fall 2014

BEMIDJI -- Although school has just started on campus, some faculty are already looking at next fall. On Friday, Bemidji State University announced it will start offering an online-only master's in business administration course in fall 2014.

Dr. Sanjeev Phukan, professor of business administration, will direct the MBA program. He began developing the curriculum in 2010.

The program will build on the existing online bachelor's degree in business. It will include 36 semester credits, with 30 core credits in 10 required courses and a two-course, six-credit elective concentration area. It will eventually offer six concentration areas, including economics, management, operations, marketing, finance and international business.

Phukan said the MBA program would be reasonably priced, but because of the nature of the program, it will be more expensive than current graduate programs.

The goal is to enroll between 25 and 35 students at the outset in a cohort-based system that keeps groups of students together in the same courses through the entire program.
