LOVELAND, Colo.--The Institute of Logistical Management (ILM) is announcing the launch of a new online Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program. The program is designed to fill a much needed gap in the market with a focus on affordable, accessible, high quality business education. Tuition is just under $67 a credit hour and the MBA program is 45 semester credit hours in length, making the total tuition for the program $3,000. There are no other fees, said a release.
The new program design incorporates traditional MBA courses with a supply chain emphasis, as well as a heavy focus on research and developing an international strategic view of firms and markets. "This is a strategic move for us. We have put together The Graduate School at ILM to stand alongside our current undergraduate courses so we may fully deliver the 21st century education the market is asking for," notes Jay Brennan, the ILM CEO. "We are out there working with top global supply chain firms every day. They tell us roughly two out of every five management positions remains unfilled due to lack of well-educated applicants. One of our main goals here at ILM is to correct that."
"We designed the new MBA curriculum to be very rigorous. Students successfully completing this program will come away with a very well rounded understanding of how business works, and will have developed an excellent set of tools to bring back into the workplace," said Dr. David Lady, the Provost for ILM and the architect of the new program.
"We have put together a great group of dedicated faculty from some of the top schools in the country that believe in what we are doing here at ILM. They are going to challenge students using both traditional and emerging instructional methods. Our expectation is that graduates of this program will compete at all levels of business bringing both time tested ideas to the table as well as newly developed innovations and outlooks," added Lady.
