North Carolina A&T State University to Debut a New Online MBA Program

North Carolina A&T State University, the historically Black educational institution in Greensboro, has announced plans to initiate a new online master of business administration program beginning this coming fall.

The new online MBA program will offer concentrations in human resource management and supply chain management. Students can choose to complete the program in two years, 18 months, or even one year, that would include summer sessions. The university reports that for the 2015-16 academic year, 100 percent of domestic MBA students in the traditional classroom format received job offers upon graduation.

Eric Gladney, the director of the MBA program for the College of Business and Economics at North Carolina A&T State University, said that “we are excited to offer the online MBA program to students in North Carolina, across the country, and across the world. Our MBA is among the most affordable in the state, and students are taught by faculty who are leaders in their disciplines.”

Dr. Gladney holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from North Carolina A&T State University, an MBA from the University of Rochester, a master’s degree from Duke University and a doctorate from United Theological Seminary.
