Dr. Tom DeBerry, director of the FHU graduate program in business, said, “I am pleased that our online MBA program has again been recognized for its good value to our students. Our MBA students pay a cost that is relatively low among nationwide online-accessible MBA programs and they receive the benefits of a program that offers both the convenience of online access and the stability and strength of a program that is also ‘bricks and mortar’ based. The faculty is comprised of mostly full-time, on-campus professors who teach both the on-campus and online-delivered courses. That good value is made even better by the fact that FHU’s MBA program is not only regionally accredited, but also holds the business-specific accreditation of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs. Some online MBA programs offer each of these benefits, but very few provide the good value to students of offering all of these benefits combined.”
The MBA at FHU is a 36-hour program that can be earned in an online format, an on-campus format, or in a combination of the two formats. Included in those 36 hours are 9 hours (3 courses) in an emphasis chosen by the student—accounting, corporate responsibility, or leadership.
