This new part-time program is designed to accommodate the schedules of busy working professionals. The program consists of 30 credit hours and can be completed in either 16 or 28 months. Through the program, students will gain the technical aptitude necessary to meet companies’ desire to leverage data and analytics to improve efficiency and grow their bottom line.
Hybrid Structure Offers Participants Flexibility
Launching in 2024, the MSBA-WP structure is intended to maximize working professionals’ ability to advance their education and careers while continuing to work full-time. It will feature a unique blend of weekly live, faculty-led, interactive online classes. The online portion of the program will be punctuated by in-person experiences, including two in-person immersion weeks in Knoxville and four in-person weekend sessions (eight days total) to encourage classmates to connect, network and get to know their faculty. The 2024 cohort will hold its in-person weekend sessions in Nashville. Other locations may be selected for future cohorts.
The MSBA-WP is designed for professionals with at least two years of business experience who want to take the lead in applying analytical tools to advance organizational goals.
