LR’s accredited MBA programs furnish students exceptional opportunities for professional development and advancement in a wide range of areas in business, commerce, and other organizational settings. The program is presently offered at both LR’s Hickory and Asheville campuses. Beginning fall semester 2016, the MBA will begin to utilize a new and highly innovative delivery model that will allow students multiple means of access to the curriculum (from term-to-term or even course-to-course): face-to-face instruction on one of the two campuses, online instruction through synchronous “streaming” classrooms, or asynchronous delivery through online video presentations. Full-time faculty mentors—a longstanding component on the program--will remain available on both campuses to support other student needs, as well (as it has since the Business began at LR in 1901).
MBA students may begin their program studies any semester (summer, fall, or spring term). As a non-cohort program, students can complete the curriculum at their own pace—full-time or part-time. Any practicum experiences can be completed close to home at the students’ greater convenience.
The philosophy of the MBA program at Lenoir-Rhyne University focuses upon five core beliefs that constitute the program's educational emphasis;
LR’s MBA is a 36-hour program. Students may complete the program at their own pace—full-time students generally can finish their degree in four semesters. Undergraduate students entering the MBA through LR’s innovative Bridges to Dreams program--available only the LR’s undergraduates—are able to finish in an even shorter amount of time.
