University of Baltimore offers 2-year M.B.A.


December 14, 1996

Business managers pinched for time, but who long for the letters M.B.A. after their names, can earn the degree by attending classes once a week at the University of Baltimore Merrick School of Business.

The university is offering a master's of business administration program that meets on Saturdays for eight 10-week semesters.

The program can be completed in two years. It is scheduled to begin in July.

"Our goal is to make our programs as convenient as possible for working students," said University of Baltimore President H. Mebane Turner.

A three-credit course for in-state students costs $690. Out-of-state students pay $915.

Sixty students will be admitted, but they will be split into two sections of 30 for the first Saturday M.B.A. class.

Merrick School of Business Dean John Hatfield said scholarship money is available.

The university recently received a $1.5 million gift for its business school.

The university's business programs are accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business.
