A Quick Study of Successful Business Models
When Jacksonville University’s Davis College of Business opened its downtown campus location last year on the 18th floor of Sun- Trust Tower, it returned the school to the city center where it opened in 1934. The school also took the occasion to launch a collection of online, hybrid and cohort business programs. The MBA program features disciplines in consumer goods and services, accounting and finance, management accounting, business analytics, and organizational management, along with aviation and sport management. A global MBA is planned.
Hodges has campuses 20 minutes apart in Naples and Fort Myers, but some MBA students still want more convenience. Last semester the Johnson School of Business at Hodges University launched “technology enhanced courses” as part of its MBA offerings. Under TEC, most MBA classes are streamed live for students who can’t attend in person and are stored online all semester for those who need a refresher, says Johnson School dean Aysegul Timur. Students watching live online also can chat with classmates and the instructor in real time, she says. “If you can’t make the class today, tomorrow you can have your cup of coffee and watch the class.”
A new certificate option in forensic accounting and fraud examination can be added to Hodges’ MBA program. The 18-credit-hour program is ideal for MBA candidates who want to better blend business and accounting.
