(Fargo, ND) -- NDSU is announcing the launch of a new "fully online" MBA program, which will be offered for the first time beginning this fall.

"What we were finding as we have more of our workforce that is working on remote teams and working from different locations that the interest in being able to study MBA courses from a different location is quite high," Kathryn Birkeland, Ronald G. and Kaye S. Olson Dean of the College of Business. 

Birkeland says "synchronous classes will be offered in the evening to allow working professionals to balance their career with earning an advanced degree". 

Three areas of emphasis for the MBA include Business Analytics, Digital Marketing and Innovation, and Leadership and Managerial Skills.
