This month, the University of Utah’s MBA Online program at the David Eccles School of Business celebrates five years of education, innovation, and excellence. Utah’s MBA Online was founded on the simple belief that geography and schedule constraints should never dictate someone’s access to high-quality graduate business education. Complete with AACSB international accreditation and a top-11 in the world ranking by the Princeton Review, the program now extends its reach into 31 states and five nations with 268 students and alumni who are making an impact in almost every industry.
“We are incredibly proud of what we have accomplished in the last five years. We went from enrolling 17 students in our first semester in Fall 2014 to the now hundreds of students and graduates we have throughout the world,” said Brad Vierig, associate dean at the Eccles School. “In the last five years, we’ve moved into a brand new building with a state-of-the-art recording studio, built out a robust curriculum with dozens of elective options, hired impressive new faculty, expanded our on-campus residency, and more, but one thing has stayed exactly the same: our commitment to making cutting-edge business learning accessible to all.”
Why are professionals around the world choosing Utah’s MBA Online? Rob Gillette, a vice president of customer support living in Mount Airy, Maryland says, “I wanted to attend a top-ranked school. I wanted affordable tuition. I wanted a veteran-friendly school. I live on the East Coast, and I wanted a school in the West to build my network in another area. The Eccles School MBA Online met all my selection criteria. These are the people that will change the world, and I am thrilled to be alongside them in this program.”
Utah’s MBA Online is committed to continual improvement and innovation, and we are looking to make just as much impact in the next five years as we have in the last five years. To learn more about Utah’s MBA Online, visit MBAOnline.Eccles.Utah.edu.
