Lucas Graduate School MBA Program Restructured

The LCOB has restructured the MBA program to deliver a better experience for students in a more effective and efficient format. The Early Career MBAis tailored for individuals with limited professional work experience. The MBA for Professionals is designed for individuals with five or more years of professional of work experience. With both programs, students are able to choose and adjust the pace in which they complete their degree to accommodate a demanding work and life schedule. In addition, the restructuring has enabled the Graduate School to guarantee elective offerings as well as streamlining course scheduling for both students and faculty.

This is the first of a series of concise "Dean's Corner" communications to keep you abreast of the many exciting activities at our College. The theme will be "Did You Know?" items that make our College distinctive and contribute to the excellent academic experience of our students.

I have some good news from the recent 2015 edition of the U.S. News & World Report college rankings. Based on the rankings for public colleges offering only bachelor's and master's degrees in the Bay Area:

  • Lucas College is #1 for undergraduate business programs

  • Based on scores on the GMAT entrance test, the Lucas Graduate School is #1 for Part-Time MBA programs

Needless to say, we should all be very proud!

Have a great Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
