We have a dual responsibility to cater to our people,” said Dr. Jonathan U. Elimimian, Dean of Business Administration for Talladega College.

Talladega College was recently approved by the Board of Trustees of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission to offer a Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. The seven areas of concentration for the program are accounting, management, marketing, finance, logistics, healthcare management, and entrepreneurship, which enables graduates to control their own destiny. The program can be completed in as little as a year and is offered online or through hybrid learning.

According to Dr. Lisa Long, Provost and Vice president of Academic Affairs for Talladega College, the new program directly aligns with the College’s strategic goal of promoting student success through innovative curriculum offerings.

“One of our goals is to expand program offerings to include more postgraduate, continuing education, and online degree programs; the MBA program is inclusive of all of the aforementioned components,” added Long.

Unlike most MBA programs, Talladega’s program only requires candidates to have a bachelor’s degree and enroll in prerequisite courses, which consists of coursework that equips students with the necessary knowledge required to successfully matriculate through the MBA program.

Course offerings for the 2021 – 2022 academic year include, but are not limited to leadership, advanced accounting, human resource management, managerial economics, and healthcare. According to Elimimian, the College has strategically recruited professors and instructors who are experts in an array of research-based business practices, which are viable to the success of the MBA program.

The College also offers a Master of Science in Computer Information Systems (MSCIS). “For a college to be able to offer a master’s degree program shows evidence of the president’s foresight and his willingness to promote and improve the institution,” said Elimimian.

“Talladega encourages scholarship and this program will put the College on the map,” he added.
