Carleton’s Sprott School to offer full online MBA programs

With the demand for distance learning increasing during the pandemic, Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business will begin offering full online MBA degrees this summer.

As of July, Sprott is adding four online MBA programs to its curriculum: a traditional MBA program, an MBA with a concentration in business analysis, an MBA with a concentration in financial management, and an MBA with a concentration in management and change.

In a press release Wednesday, the university said the new virtual offerings are “especially important for working professionals who want to pursue graduate degrees to advance their careers but need the ability to study anywhere and set their own schedule.”

The online programs will have more launch dates throughout the year. Sprott says they will be “self-paced with 24/7 access to asynchronous courses to meet busy schedules.”

The school partnered with Dallas-based Academic Partnerships, which helps more than 55 universities in North America offer online courses to develop the programs.

“We were very careful to choose a partner who brings significant experience and insight to the delivery of online teaching, as well as an openness to create a unique academic offering that meets the needs of professional students and organizations,” said Dana Brown, Dean of Sprott School of Business, said in a statement.

The first cycle of classes begins on July 4th. The application deadline is June 20.

The expansion of Sprott’s online offering comes just months after the school opened the Nicol Building, its new $ 65-million home in the heart of Carleton’s campus. The six-story, 100,000-square-foot building features state-of-the-art classrooms, a start-up incubator and meeting rooms.
