|MBA Program Overview|
Online - and On Your Schedule!
Throughout its history, Limestone College has provided individuals who didn't have the opportunity to pursue a higher educational goal with the chance to do just that. The MBA program is the newest Limestone College offering to reach out to those who aren't able to attend traditional graduate programs in their area. The courses offered via the Internet have the same content as those taught in traditional courses. The only change is in the delivery of that content. Through the use of computers and Internet technology, we're able to give students a viable option to earn a graduate degree around their busy schedule and life. And since its inception in 1996, our Internet program has been a huge success. Limestone College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, baccalaureate, and masters degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033 - 4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Limestone College. Normal inquiries about the institution, such as admission requirements, financial aid, and educational programs should be addressed directly to Limestone College.
How It Works
The Limestone MBA program is unique in several ways. First, the program has been designed to take the best aspects of a traditional college MBA program as well as those from online programs. The MBA program includes three weekend seminars, which are held on the main campus in Gaffney, South Carolina. These seminars give you a great chance to meet fellow students, network with professors, and see the campus. To minimize any required time off from work, the three residencies typically run from 2:00pm on Friday to noon on Sunday.
The vast majority of courses in the MBA program are offered over the Internet. The major difference in the delivery of an Internet course and a classroom course is the separation of the student and the professor. There are no specific times that the student must be online and all lectures and assignments are delivered to the student via the Internet. While specific methodologies vary with the professor, the Limestone MBA program focuses on case studies and solving real world problems. The student will be required to take online exams with proctors that are approved by the College.
