The University of Louisville and University of Kentucky are teaming up to develop the state’s first Master of Business Administration program for executives.
U of L business school dean Charlie Moyer says the joint program will be aimed at established professionals.
“It’s an MBA degree but it’s aimed at a very different clientele of people, folks who have considerably more work experience….12 to 15 years on average is what we expect," explains Moyer.
There are still details to be worked out, like which courses will be included, but Moyer says the program should be up and running in fall 2014.
Students will spend equal time in both Louisville and Lexington classrooms and the universities will split both costs and revenue.
Moyer says there is strong support among faculty members at both schools and he expects the new MBA program to enroll up to 45 regional students.
