MBA Classes to be Offered at Downtown Campus

COLUMBUS, Ga. - To better serve a growing downtown business community, Columbus State University today announced it will offer some Masters of Business Administration classes at the new downtown campus.

MBA classes will start this fall in the Yancey Center at One Arsenal Place, next door to the Convention and Trade Center, CSU President Frank Brown said.

This move allows the university to again better serve this community, Brown said. Having MBA classes downtown will give professionals in that area easy access to a program that recently achieved the highest level of accreditation possible, international accreditation from AACSB International The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Holding some business classes downtown on what CSU calls its RiverPark campus is a logical next step for the D. Abbott Turner College of Business, said Dean Linda Hadley.

This move is part of a larger effort to broaden our program delivery methods, including expanded availability of online courses to better meet the needs of current and prospective students, Hadley said. We will offer MBA courses, undergraduate prerequisites to the MBA program and courses leading to an undergraduate minor in business for non-business majors.

The MBA is a general management degree that prepares individuals for administrative positions in business, industry or government. The program accommodates students who have business and non-business baccalaureate degrees and provides the student with a broad understanding of management and its role in society.

The MBA is a professional degree and, therefore, has no language or thesis requirement. Research projects and formal papers are required in specific courses. The program can be completed with 30 semester credits of graduate course work, depending upon the student's prior education.
