BANGOR — Husson University has announced that it will start a Master of Business Administration program in January.

“The new MBA program will provide additional options for both full-time students and working professionals,” said Husson President Robert Clark. “The content and scope will include a global perspective reflective of today’s business community.”

The program will include an Executive MBA for those progressing from an undergraduate degree in business. The degree will encompass 36 credit hours of study in graduate business courses.

By the middle of next year, Husson also plans to roll out an Enhanced MBA for students who have completed their undergraduate degree in a field other than business.

Lynne Coy-Ogan, Husson’s provost, said both degrees would be available at Husson campuses in Bangor, Portland and Presque Isle by the end of 2011.

Husson will discontinue its current Master of Science in Business program.

“The MBA is one of the most sought-after degrees in business,” noted Ronald Nykiel, dean of the School of Business. “The business faculty have extensive experience in industry and academia, which results in a contemporary and relevant learning environment.”

Coy-Ogan said that “in the future we will look at expanding our delivery through additional online course offerings and interactive video communications.”

Husson’s School of Business has more than 1,300 students and offers programs in accounting, business administration, computer information systems, hospitality and tourism management, legal studies, and sport management. The school also encompasses the Richard E. Dyke Center for Family Business.
