SMU Cox Launches New Online MBA

Postby AfricanMustang » Thu Dec 13, 2018 11:56 am

The Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University (SMU Cox) in Dallas, announced today that it is launching an online Master of Business Administration with Noodle Partners, the nation’s fastest-growing higher education provider. The SMU Board of Trustees voted at its December meeting to unanimously approve the new Online MBA, which will help equip graduates to handle unstructured problems via data analytics, team building and experiential learning.

“Offering an Online MBA will help SMU Cox expand access to our one-of-a-kind institution; we are very excited to bring our data-centric ideology to a wider audience of business professionals,” Cox School of Business Dean Matthew Myers said. “It’s important to us to partner with the best tech providers to ultimately build an incredible program that matches our on-ground offerings. We are confident that Noodle Partners shares those goals and will help us achieve them.”

The top-50 business school anticipates that the new online program will prepare students to strategically and thoughtfully leverage data for problem-solving across a wide range of functional areas. The SMU Cox Online MBA program officially launched today and will focus on three Foundational Pillars: Leadership, Analytics, and Experiential Learning.

“Like all SMU Cox degree programs, the new Online MBA will focus on preparing students for the changing workforce and not just on providing skills to be job-ready today,” Associate Dean for Executive Education and Graduate Programs Shane Goodwin said.

FYI, Noodle is a high-quality provider, and we've been in the works with them for a couple of years. The emphasis has been on a high degree of synchronous time (i.e., face to face with the professor and other students) virtually to maintain a quality educational experience. Class size is limited to about 15 students to ensure high-quality exchanges. Students will also do an initial immersion experience on-campus and have repeated network building activities (to maintain the emphasis on Cox's brand and reputation in DFW). This is a big opportunity for Cox, and it's a part of the curriculum and program revamping initiative we have underway to improve/update the value Cox provides to students.

Are online programs typically the same cost as on campus ones?

Yes, usually in terms of MBA. I think USC and ASU charge about $5-10k more for online than on campus.

Why would they charge more for online courses? I would imagine that it is cheaper for the schools to offer online courses than on campus courses?

Most schools have a production studio for online courses. It costs more money than an empty classroom does to maintain those studios, use technology to create video content, voice overs, and applications to deliver that content. If each section of students is only 15-20 students, it also costs money for TAs to manage the asynchronous content once you add more sections than the professor can handle. Of course, for some students (i.e., those that work full time outside Dallas), that $5-10k is much less than the burden/cost of attending classes on campus.
