University MBA program largest with majority female students

Posted 03/08/19

The Boston Business Journal’s latest rankings of MBA programs in Massachusetts shows Fitchburg State University boasts the largest program with majority female enrollment.

The university, which offers face-to-face and 100 percent online iterations of the MBA program, was ranked fifth in the state for overall enrollment, according to the Business Journal. Of those top five, only Fitchburg State had a majority of women in its program, with more than 54 percent female students.

Professor Joseph McAloon, who chairs the MBA program at Fitchburg State, said the accelerated 17-month program and online options have helped increase enrollment in the program.

“People are increasingly seeking new options and greater flexibility as they pursue advanced degrees,” McAloon said. “Eighty percent of working adults are 25 or older. A successful MBA program requires frequent start dates, affordable tuition, a streamlined admissions process, and a high-quality product. These attributes have made our nationally accredited program, which can be completed for just $12,500, attractive to a diverse group of students. Our graduates are enhancing their careers on a schedule that works for them, and lets them preserve a meaningful work-life balance.”
