Howard University School of Business Enhances its MBA Degree Offerings

The Howard University School of Business has announced a partnership with Noodle Partners to launch an online MBA degree program and invest in the growth of its online Executive MBA program.

This marks the first HBCU to work with Noodle Partners, the nation’s fastest-growing online program manager. Noodle Partners has already contributed to the changing demographics of graduate degree programs nationally and internationally. Fifty percent of graduate students in Noodle Partners programs are from underrepresented ethnic groups.

Barron H. Harvey, dean of the Howard University School of Business, stated that “the School of Business is committed to continuing our legacy of providing superior business education to minority students and diversifying the global workforce. We chose to work with Noodle Partners because of their innovative approach, commitment to efficiency, and transparent practices. With their help, we have broadened our capacity to meet students wherever they are in their careers — and in the world — and we could not be more excited. Our MBA and executive education programs provide training to diverse business leaders who not only lead in their industries and a variety of sectors, but who also champion the creation of more diverse and culturally aware businesses that can better serve diverse populations.”

Dr. Harvey earned an MBA in accounting and a Ph.D. in organizational behavior and management theory in 1977, both from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Both the new online MBA and the executive MBA programs are now accepting applications for the summer 2020 term.
