MCB to Launch Fully Online MBA Program

February 23, 2018

The University of Northern Colorado has selected Academic Partnerships (AP), a leading comprehensive online service provider, to expand access to the Monfort College of Business’s Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program. AP specializes in assisting public universities with converting campus-based programs into an online format while also leading efforts to recruit, enroll and retain those students, in addition to faculty training and support.

In a letter to the campus community, Monfort College Dean Paul Bobrowski explained, “This move accelerates and amplifies our efforts to increase access to our MBA program—across Colorado and beyond. Students seeking a learning experience that balances theory with practice taught by top faculty, entrepreneurs and business practitioners will, I predict, find our MBA program to be a challenging, affordable and convenient option.” 

A team from Academic Partnerships is working closely with faculty and staff at UNC to prepare for a late April launch of the marketing effort. The first cohort will begin classes in August of this year. Additional details are below.
