MURRAY, Ky. — The fall semester 2010 marked the highest enrollment ever for the Murray State University college of business master of business administration (MBA) degree program. The enrollment was 266 students.
“Not only does this exceptional number of students reaffirm the MBA as the flagship graduate program in the college of business, it is also an important milestone in our steadfast efforts to be a significant academic contributor in the increased enrollment drive, successfully headed by President Randy Dunn,” said Dr. Tim Todd, dean of the college of business.
Dr. Gerry N. Muuka, associate dean of the college and the MBA program director, noted that the fall enrollment represented an increase of 16.7 percent or 38 more graduate students in the MBA over fall 2009.
Muuka attributes the increase to several factors. The 100 percent online MBA had a significant increase and in the spring was ranked 16th in the nation in terms of quality (AACSB-accredited) and cost effectiveness.
Another factor was the enrollment of 16 in the Professional MBA (PMBA) program begun in Henderson in the fall. An additional four to eight students are expected to join the cohort program in January 2011.
The MBA program has more than half of all the graduate students in the college of business. There are six graduate programs in the college.
