MBA Enrollment Doubles

Thursday, September 18, 2008

The Richards College of Business at the University of West Georgia doubled enrollment in their Master of Business Administration program this year with a total of 140 registered students.

According to Dr. Jon Anderson, associate dean and MBA director in the RCOB, the business administration degree plays a significant role in providing education for working managers in the West Georgia region.

“Through recent innovations in pedagogy, course scheduling and curriculum, the MBA is now more effective and accessible than in the past,” said Anderson. “These improvements have led to increased enrollments and a stronger influence on the business environment in West Georgia, Atlanta and other places in the world our graduates now work.”

The RCOB offers the MBA program at the Carrollton campus, the Newnan Center and through the Georgia WebMBA online program. MBA classes include learning how to communicate professionally in written and oral presentations, ethical decision-making and using technology effectively on the job.

The Carrollton and Newnan campuses offer the option of evening classes for the non-traditional students in either a full time or part time schedule. The Georgia WebMBA also offers a flexible schedule of round-the-clock access.

The RCOB is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), a distinction achieved by fewer than fifteen percent of business schools worldwide.

The business college is also one of approximately four percent of schools with separate AACSB accreditation for the accounting program and has received recognition from The Princeton Review as one of America’s Best Value Colleges in both 2007 and 2008.
