Michigan Tech MBA Online featured in Businessweek

The “new kid on the block” is getting noticed.

Michigan Tech’s online MBA was launched in fall of 2010 and is already getting good coverage from national sources.  Bloomberg Businessweek’s web site has listed the program under its “Distance Learning” section.

“We are pleased to see our new Tech MBA® Online Program getting this well-deserved attention,” says School of Business and Economics Dean Darrell Radson.

The two-year Tech MBA® Online focuses on technology and innovation management.  The degree incorporates a solid foundation of fundamental business disciplines including a global perspective.  Training professionals to be ethical leaders who manage financially sound but sustainable organizations is also a program goal.  Cohorted in design, the degree includes two weekend residencies and a week-long international residency.

According to Radson, “The uniqueness of our program centers on its connection to technology.  We are using the expertise of our university and our business school to train students to take new ideas and concepts and move them into new products and new businesses. The goal of this MBA is to help our students become leaders who know how to implement good ideas, leading to innovative products or new innovations within companies.  This, in turn, will help our economy succeed.”
