You can stream the class live or watch it as a video later, so you never have to miss a thing.
Beyond the flexibility, you can also customize your studies for your career. Choose from two tracks:
- Executive Accounting/Finance
- Management Development
Tuition includes classes, a virtual international trip, and other immersion experiences, books for the 5 specialized leadership classes, supplies, flex bucks towards meals while on campus, customized advising, IT support, and more.
One of the great advantages of the JU MBA program is how much of a vested interest
the business community takes in
its success. The professor's also want to get to know you and are willing to interact with you. Not just in the classroom but they want to know you outside and want to know about your long-term plans and what they can do to help you in your professional career and then on top of that the community at JU itself is very tight-knit. A smaller campus allows you to get to know people outside of the program. Jacksonville is a great community, lots of opportunities to build relationships and get to know Jacksonville through JU.
