Lord Fairfax Community College’s Vice President of Academic & Student Affairs Christopher Coutts and President Cheryl Thompson-Stacy joined Shenandoah University President Tracy Fitzsimmons, Vice President for Academic Affairs Adrienne Bloss and Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business Dean and Professor of Management Miles Davis on Aug. 29, at LFCC’s Middletown, Va., campus, to sign an articulation agreement to make it possible for transfer students to earn their MBA in five years.
The university recently introduced two new fast-track MBA options, including a new 2 + 2 + 1 option that will allow transfer students to transition from an associate of arts and sciences degree in business administration to the bachelor’s of business administration (BBA) degree and subsequently a MBA degree — all in five years. Similarly, Shenandoah’s four-year BBA students can take advantage of a 4 + 1 fast-track to earn a MBA with one additional year of classes. The fast-track options will launch in fall 2014.
