University of Denver Opens Applications for New Online MBA

Daniels College of Business adds to its suite of MBA offerings

DENVER, July 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver is now accepting applications for its new online MBA. Designed to address the demands of an increasingly connected global workforce, the new program will accommodate early- and mid-career professionals who wish to continue working while pursuing an MBA.

"Daniels has a rich history of innovation. We continually evolve to meet the needs of today's students," says Daniels Dean Brent Chrite. "Our suite of MBA programs offers exceptional challenge-driven experiences for our students. The MBA@Denver will do the same."

MBA@Denver mirrors Daniels' on campus Part-time Professional MBA (PMBA) program where students focus on core business challenges designed to help them develop the leadership skills needed for career acceleration. Through the 2U technology platform students and faculty will meet weekly in live online classes in an intimate seminar-style setting.  In between live class sessions, students will study interactive course content created by Daniels' faculty.

Students will also meet for an immersive, in-person program where they will develop leadership skills, participate in action-learning activities, and network with peers, corporate partners, entrepreneurs and faculty members. The experience includes travelling to the Rocky Mountains for the unique Leading at the Edge three-day training, which equips students with tools needed to address ethical issues in times of stress and emphasizes problem-solving in crisis management situations.

Daniels offers an extensive portfolio of graduate and undergraduate degree programs to suit all levels of work experience, professional interests and aspirations. All programs combine the study of business fundamentals with hands-on experience and utilize technology and innovation to teach through unique simulations, practicum projects, and networking opportunities with local, regional and global business leaders.

MBA@Denver comprises 60 credit hours and may be completed in as few as 21 months. The first application deadline is Nov. 6, 2017, and the first cohort of students will begin classes in January 2018. For more information, visit onlinemba.du.edu
