LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Beginning this fall, students will have the option to complete a master of business administration degree entirely online from Eastern Oregon University.

EOU’s College of Business is piloting the program as a 20-student cohort. The decision to expand the existing MBA – which is offered on campus in La Grande and onsite in Gresham, Hermiston and Ontario – to include an online option was fueled by business student feedback.

“A survey revealed a large number of students are extremely interested in completing an MBA from EOU, but unfortunately, they are place-bound and unable to attend our on campus program,” said Donald Easton-Brooks, dean of the Colleges of Business and Education. “We are responding to our students’ needs by offering a completely online MBA.”

Adding to the flexibility of the degree is the option to fulfill the required 45 credits in either five or nine terms. Online graduate tuition is $372 per credit hour, including fees, which totals $16,740 upon completion of the program.

Applications will be accepted through April 15. The form and instructions are available at eou.edu/cobe/business/mba/admissions. For more information visit eou.edu/cobe/business/mba, call 541-962-3772 or e-mail business@eou.edu.
