Murray State MBA Program Adds New Concentrations
By WestKyStar & MSU Staff
MURRAY - The Murray State University Arthur J. Bauernfeind College of Business has added health administration, economic development and business analytics concentrations to its Master of Business Administration program, which is offered entirely online, on-campus or a mixture of both.
Murray State’s MBA program prepares students for a variety of occupations and careers, from financial planning to branding, product, marketing and service management to consulting and more. Comprised of seven courses and three electives, students can tailor their path toward an MBA to fit their specific career interests. Concentrations include marketing, human resources management, finance, accounting (available on-campus only) and more.
In the last year, the program has added concentrations in economic development, health administration and business analytics, with a concentration in cybersecurity to launch in fall 2019.
According to projections from the National Association of Colleges and Employers, MBA graduates in the class of 2019 will see an average starting salary more than $25,000 higher than graduates with a bachelor’s degree in business.
The program is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, a credential only awarded to less than 5 percent of 16,000-plus business schools worldwide.
"Murray State offers an AACSB-accredited quality MBA program either 100 percent online or on-campus with one of the lowest costs in the country for such a program,” said Dr. Joy Humphreys, MBA program director and assistant dean of the College of Business.
Students who have earned their CFP (certified financial planner) certification or have completed programs at the LSU Graduate School of Banking or the Barret Graduate School of Banking may receive prior learning credit to fast-track earning an MBA at Murray State.
Murray State University provides opportunities for students through a high-quality education with experiential learning, academic and personal growth and the ability to secure a lifetime of success. Since 1922, the true value of higher education has been found at Murray State University, where our commitment is to afford endless opportunities for developing leaders in the community, the country and the world.
