Island University’s Online MBA Nationally Recognized as a Top-25 Program

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Are you one of the many Texans seeking a degree, while balancing classroom obligations with your work and family life? Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi may be exactly what you’re looking for. Recently, Value Colleges listed the Island University as 23 among its top 50 online Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs in the nation for 2017. In addition to reputation and flexibility, Value Colleges noted the University emphasizes leadership, teamwork, diversity and social responsibility. In addition to being nationally recognized, Top Management Degrees also ranked the Island University 16 out of the top 25 undergraduate business schools in Texas.

“Our Online MBA program provides students with advanced business and management knowledge in a flexible online environment,” said Dr. John Gamble, Dean of the College of Business (COB) at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. “The result of our array of program options and convenient online delivery system is the ability to custom-tailor their graduate degree in business to their career goals.”

The COB provides excellence in instruction and investment in student learning. Students learn the latest theory in application in traditional topics such as accounting and finance, but can also select from electives and concentrations in areas such as entrepreneurship, leadership, healthcare management and social media marketing. Through the online program, graduate students will better develop analytical, technological and communication skills to get further ahead in their careers. Because the COB is invested in business innovation and economic development in South Texas, they are dedicated to their students prospering.

As a testament to the COB’s standard of excellence, the online MBA program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The coursework, which is a total of 30 hours, can be completed in 12 months. For in-state learners, that’s only $11,820—a great bargain for an educational boost.

“Cost of attendance and time of completion are very important issues to COB administrators and faculty,” said Gamble. “Our strategic objective is to develop and offer programs that will allow students to pursue the most promising career opportunities. It is also equally important that students gain superior value from their investments of time and financial resources.”

In addition to the COB’s values, the MBA program offers flexible hours. An online MBA can be the perfect match for degree seekers who have a difficult time attending on-campus classes. Whether a student is busy attending a full-time job or taking care of loved ones, the flexible hours can accommodate needs of non-traditional students.

Many graduate students have earned a bachelor degree in business, which can also be achieved at A&M-Corpus Christi. The undergraduate program can be completed in 120 hours. There are nine majors offered through the Bachelors of Business Administration degree: Accounting, Economics, Finances, General Business, Health Care, Human Resources, Management, Management Information Systems and Marketing.
