Anderson University Launches Accelerated MBA Program


Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University’s Falls School of Business has launched an Accelerated Master of Business Administration (MBA) program designed for adults who are looking for flexibility in completing their coursework. On this path, students can earn their MBA with 7-week online courses. This is the newest format of Anderson University’s four MBA programs.

“This program is perfect for motivated business professionals who desire the flexibility to accommodate their work schedules, without sacrificing program quality or a rigorous curriculum,” said Dr. Michael Collette, dean of the Falls School of Business.

The program consists of 12 courses offered over six 7-week terms and can be completed in 12 months. However, the schedule is flexible, allowing students to enroll part time or full time. 

While earning this Accelerated MBA degree, students will take in new information, tools, and hands-on learning experiences that will empower them for the future. The online, 7-week semester learning method is a flexible alternative to other traditional MBA paths that include more time and in-person options.

“Business continues to change at an accelerated pace,” said Jimmie Lake, director of AU’s MBA programs. “As a result, skill sets will need to be updated. It is important for AU to offer the Accelerated MBA, as it is structured to update students’ skill sets and aid them in navigating the ever-changing landscape of work. The Accelerated MBA provides a focused approach to developing more complex ways of thinking that will help students meet the demands of the current and future workplace and society.”

The Accelerated MBA begins January 2022, and prospective students can apply now.
