Program offers affordable and accelerated terms in budding entrepreneurial downtown community
Lynn University, one of the nation’s most innovative colleges according to U.S. News & World Report, announced it is expanding its graduate degree offerings. Professionals with more than four years of post-graduate work experience can now pursue an MBA with a specialization in marketing or entrepreneurial management in the heart of downtown Delray Beach, Florida.
“Delray Beach’s thriving businesses and innovative start-ups in hospitality, fashion, technology and product development make it an ideal environment for mid-level professionals to advance their business knowledge and careers,” says Lynn President Kevin M. Ross. “Our program is designed for working adults with convenient classes and accelerated terms, and it’s one of the most affordable professional MBA programs in the region.”
Courses will take place in the evening and include a combination of in-class and online work to allow students to obtain their MBA while working. The degree can be completed in 12 months for less than $30,000. The curriculum is designed by Lynn’s College of Business and Management and delivered through the university’s award-winning iPad-powered learning program, which provides mobile access to rich, interactive content.
Lynn collaborated with the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce to host the program in its office at 140 NE First St. Chamber leaders will lend their network and expertise to complement coursework with guest speakers and executive mentorships. This partnership model is a pilot program for Lynn.
Students will also have access to the chamber’s connections, a leadership assessment that evaluates their innate abilities to help understand their maximum potential and other added value elements.
Lynn’s professional MBA program is positioned to be highly competitive and space is limited, so applications for best consideration are due June 30. The GRE/GMAT is not required for admission. Prospective students can learn more at an open house March 28, 5:30–7 p.m., at the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce.
