The MBA curriculum is designed to provide work-ing adults with the skills, knowledge and experience they need to advance into leadership roles in their companies and communities. A mix of accounting, finance, marketing, information systems, economics, ethics and leadership courses will challenge students to synthesize and integrate their learning into the real-world business environment. This kind of prac-tical application of learning is a hallmark of adult education and provides valuable benefits to both the individual student and the business community. The MBA program will be delivered in six, eight-week sessions each year. Students who take continuous classes can graduate in two years. The program will offer a mix of classroom-based, inter-net-based and weekend immersion classes, provid-ing flexibility and varied learning experiences. As the program grows, more locations may be added. The MBA program is designed to be faithful to both the College’s and the Center’s missions. It seeks to expand access to high quality learning experienc-es for the regional working adult market; it also seeks to be an authentic expression of the Elizabethtown College ethos, captured in the motto: Educate for Service. Indeed, this will be one of the distinctive features of the program—challenging MBA stu-dents to use their education to make a positive im-pact on their company, their community and their world.

The Edward R. Murphy Center for Continu-ing Education and Distance Learning (CCEDL) at Elizabethtown College has been a part of the Col-lege community for nearly 40 years. Over the last 10 years, the Center has focused on creating aca-demic programs that fit the lives of working adults. In 2001, the Center introduced the accelerated delivery format. This format delivers immersive five-week learning experiences and flexible schedul-

ing options. In 2002, the Center delivered the first online courses offered at the College. Fast forward 10 years, and more than 30-percent of the courses offered by the Center are in online or blended deliv-ery formats. In 2003 and 2009, the Center opened new satellite centers of learning to expand the pop-ulation of students who have access to an Elizabeth-town College education. The Center introduced its first 100-percent online degree program in 2010. All of these initiatives support E-town's position as a national leader in educational programming for working adults.
