6/9/09 Fullerton, CA - Hope International University Announces a New One-Year MBA Program

Hope International University’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies is launching new one-year online graduate management programs in June, 2009. These programs, both a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and a Master of Science in Management (MSM), are ideal for individuals interested in completing a graduate management program in a short period of time. The programs will be offered in a 3 semester per year structure and are offered 100% online.

By offering online graduate management programs, HIU intends to appeal to students who want to take their careers to the next level, but are unable to stop working while pursuing an MBA program. These programs can be completed in one year (3 semesters which are comprised of 4 5-week courses each) and allow students to continue on in full-time employment. Students will also be able to focus on one course at a time as courses are five weeks in duration.

Dr. Coop, Chair of the Graduate Management Department, states, “Hope’s one year MBA and MSM degree programs allow students to make a relatively short-term investment that will pay long-term dividends. To anyone considering one of the programs, I would say, ‘Make this your year!’”

For students interested in a traditional on-campus format, Hope also offers on-campus graduate management programs. Students may also complete a graduate degree using a combination of online and on-campus coursework.

The following degree programs will be offered:

Master of Business Administration with concentrations in:

  • General Management
