USF St. Petersburg to offer three new MBA programs

The College of Business at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg has launched three new MBA programs and will hold an information session for prospective students Thursday.

The new programs are:

• MBA Online, in which students take two online classes a semester. No visits to campus are required. The program begins in January when the spring semester starts.

• 12-Month MBA, which begins when the fall semester starts Aug. 23, combines lecture, discussion, analysis and group projects. Students complete 36 credit hours, 18 in required courses and 18 in electives in management, marketing, economics, finance, corporate social responsibility and international business. Accounting students can enter the 12-month MBA program and simultaneously complete the state requirements for taking the CPA exam.

• Global MBA, which also begins Aug. 23, is a four-semester course in which students learn from faculty and visiting business professionals. Eighteen of the 36 credit hours are required courses. The other 18 are elective courses in international topics. In one course this fall, Managing Business Sustainability, Associate Professor Todd Shank will take students to Guatemala for a week in early November to learn about sustainable coffee-growing.
