FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) — Francis Marion University in Florence says the university's master of business administration program is going online.
The Morning News of Florence reports (http://bit.ly/1lrNyVE ) that students in the program have had to attend two classes a week on campus since 1987.
Beginning this fall, students will be able to study at their convenience online. They will still need to meet face-to-face with professors on up to three Saturdays during the semester.
The university says the change comes after nearly two years of studying the needs of MBA students.
Barry O'Brien, the dean of the business school, says students with 9 to 5 jobs and other commitments find it difficult to attend classes two nights a week.
