Sykes College of Business Adds Saturday MBA Option

Published: Feb 17, 2005

The John H. Sykes College of Business is launching a Saturday Professional MBA option, increasing the flexibility of an MBA program that already includes part-time evening and full-time day options, as well as the Master of Science in Technology and Innovation Management. The Saturday option is aimed at working professionals with five years experience.

“We know the Tampa Bay business community will love this program,” said Joe McCann, dean of the Sykes College. “The premier MBA program in the region just became even more accessible. This is the program that so many executives have asked to see, and now it's here.”

The Saturday offering gives MBA seekers a course schedule that won’t interrupt their work schedules, access to the University when parking and library access are easiest, and the same high-quality, AACSB-accredited program all UT MBA students receive. All MBA professors at UT have Ph.D.s, and all classes are in the wireless-connected Sykes College of Business Building.

The new offering is envisioned as a cohort program in which a class will enter at the same time and move in lock-step through a two-year sequence. Cost per credit hour is $525. Saturday MBA classes at UT begin in August. Details of UT MBA programs are available online at www.ut.edu/mba.
