Medaille College now is offering a master of business administration degree through its ACCEL program on the college's branch campus in Amherst, Medaille President Kevin I. Sullivan announced.
The degree, newly approved by the state Education Department, is the first graduate degree offering at the branch campus in Centerpointe Corporate Park.
It follows the same format as undergraduate accelerated business programs for working adults.
Students attend class one evening a week and meet weekly with their individual study groups to complete the 43-credit degree in less than two years.
Applicants must have a strong academic record, computer skills and at least three years' work experience.
The program is accredited by the International Assembly of Collegiate Business Education.
