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