The Edward R. Murphy Center for Continuing Education and Distance Learning at Elizabethtown College (CCEDL), located in Central Pennsylvania, offers a hybrid (online, blended and classroom based classes) Master of Business Administration (MBA) program.
The MBA curriculum is designed to provide working adults the skills, knowledge and experience needed to advance into leadership roles in companies and communities.
