The Falls School of Business MBA program at Anderson University is on the move. The program recently announced it will relocate its Lawrence-area learning site to a newly renovated education facility. The new site is located at 6501 Sunnyside Road in Indianapolis. The facility also houses the administrative headquarters for the Metropolitan School District of Lawrence Township.

Jill Guion, assistant director of MBA programs, said the move will extend the university's long-standing relationship with MSDLT and provide Anderson MBA students an opportunity to take classes in a facility that is equipped with the latest teaching and learning technologies. “We have had a working partnership with the MSDLT for more than 15 years," Guion said. "The opportunity to hold classes at this newly renovated facility is exciting, and this move will give our students the opportunity to learn in a physical environment that is second to none.”

The Falls School of Business delivers MBA classes at multiple off-campus locations. In the fall of 2013, the MBA program will offer classes in Anderson, Carmel, Fishers, Indianapolis, and Lawrence.

While class sessions are held at off-campus locations, courses are taught by full-time Anderson University faculty. According to Guion, “The FSB faculty members are willing to commute to these off-campus sites so that we can make the program available to working professionals who otherwise have limited options. That is a unique commitment on the part of our faculty and exemplifies a distinctive associated with our program.”

Anderson University is a private Christian university of about 2,600 undergraduate and graduate students in central Indiana. Anderson University continues to be recognized as one of America's top colleges by U.S. News and World Report, The Princeton Review, and Forbes. Established in 1917 by the Church of God, Anderson University offers more than 65 undergraduate majors and graduate programs in business, music, nursing, and theology.
