Mary Baldwin expands, refocuses MBA program
Nonprofit management, health care administration among concentrations
Mary Baldwin University has redesigned and expanded its MBA program, the Staunton-based private university announced this week. It will include four concentrations, including health care administration and nonprofit management, as well as strategic management (improving operations through systems or organizational change) and sustainable enterprise (how to launch a new social or environmentally focused business).
Previously, the university’s MBA program was narrowly focused on social benefit. “The MBU MBA is unique,” program director Joanne Tritsch said in a statement. “The classes are small, the course material is relevant to today’s business needs, and the faculty work to help each student succeed.” Although newly named as MBA director, Tritsch has taught part-time at the university since 2014.
The 18-month curriculum is entirely online. According to the university, the fall semester will start Aug. 31, with the campus reopening a week earlier, after closing March 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
