UK, U of L to combine for MBA program for executives

April 2, 2014 

Kentucky's two largest business schools are ready to enroll students for the state's first joint master's program in business administration for executives, according to a news release issued Wednesday.

The University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville will accept as many as 40 students in the MBA degree program to prepare mid-level executives at for-profit, non-profit and government organizations for senior leadership positions.

The 17-month program starts in August.

Students will attend classes every other weekend, allowing them to keep their jobs. About half of the classes will be in Louisville and half in Lexington, with courses offered in three- to four-week terms that alternate between the two campuses.

The program's curriculum of 46 credit hours includes 22 course hours on management; six on current business issues; four each on accounting, economics, finance and marketing; and two on quantitative methods.

Total program tuition is $67,500.

The early admission deadline is May 1, and the final admission deadline is June 1.

The program is scheduled to go before the University of Louisville's Faculty Senate for final approval on May 7.
