Rollins Announces New Graduate Business DegreesNew Graduate Degree Programs Include Florida’s First Executive Doctorate in Business Administration.
The Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business today announced three new graduate business programs. The new programs include Florida’s first AACSB-accredited Executive Doctorate in Business Administration, a Master of Science in Management, and a Master of Science in Entrepreneurship. As with all of Rollins’ programs, the new additions will include personalized attention from world-class faculty, free courses for life, and the opportunity to build lifelong connections with a strong network of fellow students and alumni.
New program descriptions:
- EDBA (Executive Doctorate in Business Administration) – The Rollins College Executive Doctorate in Business Administration (EDBA) program is the state’s first AACSB-accredited professional doctoral program for executives who have a master’s degree in business or related advanced degree. Each student will work closely with a faculty advisor for the duration of the 3-year program, and the experience culminates with a year-long dissertation that addresses issues and challenges that apply directly to the executive’s business interest. EDBA students will meet once a month on campus (Friday & Saturday). The GMAT is not required to apply for this program, but admissions will be highly competitive.
- Master of Science in Management – Designed to help college graduates launch their careers quickly, Rollins’ Master of Science in Management program targets students who have completed an undergraduate business degree within the past five years. MSM students can choose a general management or international management track in order to gain the knowledge, skills and abilities required of managers in the 21st century. A strong foundation of management, teamwork, and leadership skills will prepare MSM students for success in a complex, dynamic and global business environment. Applicants may choose either a 9-month full-time program or 17-month part-time program.
- Master of Science in Entrepreneurship – Rollins’ Master of Science in Entrepreneurship will empower students to launch, manage and finance a rapidly growing company, identify and evaluate market opportunities for products and services, and think critically about the viability of an entrepreneurial enterprise.
“Rollins College monitors the local and national economies so that we know what tools college graduates and professionals need to compete and succeed in a highly educated business world,” said Dr. Craig McAllaster, dean of the Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business. “A graduate-level education for business has become the baseline for professionals competing for jobs. By introducing these new graduate programs—and the first executive doctorate of business administration program in Florida—Rollins will continue to provide its students with a competitive edge.”
Tuition for the inaugural EDBA program is $67,995. Program tuition costs for the MSE and MSM are $33,780 each.
