Avila University announces that students can now sign up and apply to its new online graduate business programs, offered in partnership with Academic Partnerships (AP). Classes will start for Avila’s trusted MBA and Master of Arts in Management online programs in January 2023. For those interested in adult student undergraduate programs, the University’s 13 fully online undergraduate programs will launch in March 2023.
These online program courses are all taught by Avila professors who are academically and professionally qualified in their areas of discipline, with most having a terminal degree in the area of discipline – and all of whom are invested in students’ success. Designed with working adults in mind, especially those who wish to expand their careers but need the flexibility to balance personal and professional goals, these graduate degree programs help students learn industry-demanded skills and apply them on the job immediately.
Avila’s commitment to personal engagement and high-touch experiential learning is at the forefront of these online programs. Students can expect to receive the benefits of private education, but at an affordable price point and with the flexibility they need.
“At the vanguard of our partnership with AP is student access to high-quality, affordable higher education and student success,” said Avila President Jim Burkee, Ph.D.
AP’s mission to expand access to top-quality, affordable, and workforce-relevant education aligns well with Avila University. AP is a leading online facilitator focused primarily on adult learners and a partner to more than 55 universities, primarily regional universities, across North America. Avila has a 25-year history of serving working adult students, and its faculty will ensure the programs’ academic quality by driving all aspects of teaching, curriculum, and course content, while AP will assist with prospective student outreach and will work collaboratively in a consultative role with faculty in converting their courses to an online format.
