Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School to launch blended learning MBA in Fall 2013
The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University has revamped its master’s in business adminstration to include both online and offline learning in a program to launch fall 2013.
The FlexMBA program includes three different methods of study: traditional on campus sessions, online classes, and self paced online activities. Students who enroll in the program will be placed in sections of 20-30 and will recieve the same benefits as those in traditional MBA programs.
FlexMBA will run on an LMS developed at Carnegie Mellon that features class archives, documents, notes, videos, and virtual study spaces.
“The new FlexMBA model draws on our school’s experience earned over nearly two decades of successful graduate-level distance-learning programs and combines that knowledge with our expertise in traditional full- and part-time MBA education,” said Michael Trick, senior associate dean for education at the Tapper School in a prepared statement. “Maintaining quality and consistency across all our MBA delivery platforms is paramount. The flexibility of the FlexMBA format makes it convenient for students anywhere in North America to access our curriculum and faculty.”
