- Fifteen faculty members will deliver instruction for the Online MBA program, all of whom teach at the Jenkins MBA program’s main and RTP campuses as well.
- The online degree will consist of 45 credit hours at a cost of $30,600 for in-state students and $58,230 for out-of-state students.
- Jenkins expects to attract “road warriors” (those who travel often); “transients” who are likely to be transferred to other areas due to their jobs; members of the military; international students; stay-at-home mothers or fathers; and tech-savvy students who prefer an online method that utilizes technology as part of the instructional process.
- The majority of the Jenkins Online MBA instruction will be offered through NC State’s Distance Education & Learning Technology Partners (DELTA), using mostly asynchronous methods, including podcasts linked with PowerPoint, tools such as Camtasia and Elluminate, streaming video files, and online discussion boards.
