Building on the successful accelerated MBA programs, Holy Family University has created the new hybrid format, a program that blends the dynamic interaction of the "face-to-face" classroom with the convenience and flexibility of the online learning environment. Each eight-week course meets in the classroom one Saturday per month; all other course work is conducted online. While a maximum period of three years is allowed to complete degree requirements, the MBA program may be completed in just 20 months at the Newtown location.
The MBA is designed to help full-time working adults with a minimum of three years of managerial experience reach their highest potential in the business environment. Courses require students to become actively engaged in the learning process through critical reflection, oral and written communication, and rigorous curiosity. Each student's work and life experiences are acknowledged as contributions they bring to the learning environment. Courses ask students to make use of their work knowledge to meet course goals.
The program consists of 10 three-credit courses, totaling 30 credits.
