NEW ADDITION TO MBA PROGRAM - Classes at Lower Columbia College, Longview, Washington
Eastern Washington University at Lower Columbia College (LCC) in Longview, Washington, will now offer a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree through interactive television (ITV), beginning fall quarter, 2015.
An academic planning committee with the Washington State Council of Presidents approved the distance learning program after a month-long evaluation period.
Students in Longview will be able to join the EWU Spokane's MBA classroom via ITV from the LCC campus. Faculty at EWU Spokane's College of Business and Public Administration (CBPA), where the MBA program is based, will deliver lessons to classrooms at LCC equipped with ITV technology. The setup allows students in both classrooms, LCC and Spokane, to see each other and hear instructors and their presentations, as well as ask questions and interact as if they were not on separate sides of the state.
"This is a wonderful way to expand the reach of our growing program," said Roberta Brooke, MBA program director. "Having EWU's MBA offered at the LCC campus will provide access and opportunity for students and professionals all over southwest Washington."
EWU's CBPA also offers a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BAB) at the LCC location, providing students there a perfect pathway into the MBA program offered through ITV.
In 2013, Eastern opened offices and began delivering academic degrees through LCC's Regional University Center. In addition to the MBA and BAB, EWU's offerings at the Center include online programs in Interdisciplinary Studies and Children Studies, and an online webinar in Applied Technology.
