University of Arizona Retools MBA Program

Continuing education has become a primary choice for many college graduates who have lost jobs or topped out on their opportunities for advancement. The average age for new college students today is around twenty five years, reinforcing the perception of a significant movement among professionals to upgrade their credentials.

The University of Arizona has created four new MBA degree options at their business school for returning professionals, all of them accelerated programs that allow students to re-tool their business skills and get back to the job hunt in a timely manner. The Eller School of Management announcement touches on several approaches to continuing education that reflect shifts in the job market.

The four new options that the University has announced include a 12 month MBA option for students who already hold a business degree at the bachelor's level. There is an eighteen month MBA option for professionals who are still working, and a fourteen month program that is for professionals with extensive executive experience.

All of these programs provide for elective choices that center on the student's career ambitions. A course in supply chain management may be crucial to one student, while the study of e-commerce might be important to another. The twelve month program in particular is designed to allow students with a BS in business to fold in a high number of elective courses.

The other component of the University's realigned business school options involves dual degrees. Returning students who want to focus on a particular industry can pursue one of the accelerated MBA programs while simultaneously working on a graduate program in the appropriate industry. There are many students enrolled in the business school who are interested in environmental degrees. They see the roll that business is going to play in sustainability and want the training to be a part of it.

The University, for its part, is introducing new focus areas in the MBA program that include courses on health care administration and the business side of the energy sector. With this degree of cooperation from the business school, students in a dual degree program can complete their MBA degree as well as a degree in growth industries such as energy or health.
