California's UC Davis Graduate School of Management has announced the launch of a new Online MBA program.
The program's inaugural intake will launch in October 2019. The Online MBA will offer four start dates per year, in January, April, July and October.
UC Davis' new Online MBA will be offered in a flexible format; most students will take between 24 and 36 months to complete the degree. The program will include 11 core courses—including, for example, "Financial Accounting" and "Marketing Management," along with 64 units of elective classes. Students in the Online MBA program will also participate in two in-person residential sessions.
To apply for the new program, prospective candidates should have at least two years of work experience, and submit either a GMAT or GRE score, along with essays, transcripts, and letters of recommendation, among other application requirements. The final deadline to apply for the program's October 2019 intake is August 2.
At the current cost per unit, the total cost for UC Davis' Online MBA program will be $104,400.
With the new program, UC Davis has joined a number of other US business schools that have launched high-profile Online MBA programs in recent years. Last year, for example, Michigan - Ross announced the launch of another premium Online MBA program.
UC Davis' Graduate School of Management, like Michigan - Ross, is AACSB-accredited. You can see a list of all AACSB-accredited business schools offering Online MBA programs here.
