Citing changing student needs, Wake Forest University School of Business said Wednesday that it will no longer offer its traditional daytime MBA program and will instead focus exclusively on its program for working professionals.
Wake Forest’s working professional program, available at the Charlotte and Winston-Salem campuses, offers evening and weekend classes.
The program has experienced double-digit growth in the last five years, Charles Iacovou, Dean of the School of Business, said in a statement. The schedule is designed for students who are pursuing careers while at the same time studying for their master’s of business administration.
Wake Forest cited national figures showing that students are enrolling in these types of MBA programs twice as much as traditional, daytime MBA programs.
“As Wake Forest prepares tomorrow’s business leaders for an ever-changing global economy, we must be nimble and innovative in how we educate our students today,” Iacovou said in a statement. “Quality education, better experience, easier access: that’s our vision for the future of the MBA.”
