The value of the Professional MBA 2.0TM program stems from two sources: the convenience of the online delivery system and course format and the high quality of the faculty. The online format allows you to reduce the time spent on campus without eliminating the important interaction and networking opportunities that arise in the classroom. Our faculty are not part-time instructors who drop by to teach a class after work - they are nationally respected scholars who have published numerous articles and books in their respective fields, and engage in extensive real-world consulting. The quality of our faculty (and our program) is reflected in the fact that the Professional MBA 2.0TM program is the only hybrid MBA offered by an AACSB-accredited college of business in the St. Louis region.

The Professional MBA 2.0TM program has been enhanced by the introduction of a 7-10 day international experience. Students will take the program-related trip during their second year.

The Professional MBA 2.0TM is a 21-month program (42 credits) that meets one weekend per month on Friday and/or Saturday. Approximately 40% of the course will be face-to-face, and the remainder of the course relies on the various communication methods available on the Internet.

Each course is completed over a twelve-week period. Generally, two new courses are introduced every three months. Click here to view the course calendar. The curriculum provides the benefits of the lecture/discussion format while relying on Internet technology to provide support and follow-up to the subject matter. Students have the benefit of interacting with their cohort groups on campus as well as over the Net.

Program participants take an active role in the use of Internet-based groupware. Those interested in this program should be comfortable with the use of interactive technology and possess an Internet-accessible computer that meets the program's specified standards.

Who should apply?
The Professional MBA 2.0TM program is accepting applications for potential candidates with at least three years of full-time professional work experience after earning an undergraduate degree. Every applicant is asked to submit GMAT scores, transcripts, an essay, letters of recommendation, and participate in a telephone or personal interview.
