Livingstone College Announces It Will Offer Its First Graduate Degree Program

Livingstone College, a historically Black educational institution in Salsbury, North Carolina, has announced that it will offer a new master’s degree program in business administration. It will be the first graduate degree program in the 143-year history of the college. The first students are expected to enroll for the Spring 2023 semester.

The MBA program will be offered on the main campus of Livingstone College. Instruction will be a 100 percent traditional face-to-face format. To accommodate family responsibilities and employment, graduate students will have the flexibility to take classes during the evenings (Monday through Thursday) with some classes also being offered on Saturday. The MBA is a 36-credit hour degree program. Students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA to meet graduation requirements.

The approval paves the way for Livingstone College to officially transition to Livingstone University,” said Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr., president of Livingstone College. “The new name would mark a significant milestone in the evolution of the 143-year-old institution’s history, reflecting the expansion of its purview of academic offerings.”

After the implementation of the MBA program, the college plans to submit a prospectus for a master’s degree in sport management, and endeavors to expand its offerings as it develops a School of Graduate Studies.
