Residents of Northwest Georgia who want to advance their careers will no longer have to drive to Atlanta to earn an MBA. The Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University is expanding its outreach by establishing the Career Growth MBA™ Program – Dalton Cohort.

“The Dalton cohort gives residents of the Dalton‚ Calhoun and Rome areas the opportunity to study close to home‚” said Kevin Sightler‚ Ph.D.‚ Associate Dean for Graduate Business Programs at the Coles College. “Given the quality of the program‚ as well as its flexibility and accessibility‚ we are also receiving applications from Tennessee and Alabama‚” he adds.

The Career Growth™ MBA program is designed for busy professionals who have at least two years significant business experience‚ and want to expand their opportunities. The flexible classes allow students to pursue their degrees without interrupting their careers. The program is accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Foundation classes for the Dalton cohort start this month for students without undergraduate business degrees. Students who already have business degrees will begin their studies in January. Coles College graduate faculty members will teach the courses for two nights a week on the campus of Dalton State College. The entire program lasts from 20 to 24 months.

Students in the metro Atlanta area will still be able to take Career Growth™ MBA classes at KSU and the Cobb Galleria.
