The Bard Difference
The Bard MBA model of weekend intensives has key advantages:
- Accommodates professionals working up to 30 hours per week.
- Supports attendance from across the region, country, and even the globe.
- Enables teaching by leading national faculty and cutting edge practitioners.
- Provides contact hours and content comparable to a traditional residential program.
Bard’s approach is also the right way to do business education. The on-line dimension of the curriculum is primarily lecture and discussion, focused on content delivery in a traditional style. This allows much of the time during the weekend intensives to be freed up for interactive group projects, engaging with guest experts, and working directly with area businesses. The Bard MBA program is, in fact, a series of powerful, 4-day educational retreats—twenty of them over the course of two years. MORE >>
