Ohio University’s College of Business provides an affordable full-time one-year MBA degree. OU’s 42-credit hour program expands skills and utilizes professional development seminars to build on valuable business acumen. The school also offers a full-time Master of Accountancy degree and a Master’s of Sports Administration/MBA dual degree. OU’s variety of part-time and online MBA programs allows students to select the option that best suits their career interests.

The hybrid format makes use of virtual classrooms, online learning modules, and once-a-month Saturday residencies. 

Ohio University Online MBA Programs

Ohio University offers a relatively large selection of online MBA programs ranging from a traditional part-time MBA to a Master of Science in Athletic Administration.
