New Website Touts GWSB’s Online Graduate Programs

GWSB has launched a website with video to promote and explain the School’s new suite of four online graduate programs.

The suite includes the School’s new online MBA program, as well as master’s programs in information systems technology (MSIST), project management (MSPM), and tourism administration (MTA).

The suite unifies the four online programs under the new rubric of “GWSB:  DC” – where “DC” stands for “Digital Community.”  Each program has its own set of credit and course requirements.  Nineteen students began the online MBA program this week.

Dean Doug Guthrie has touted GWSB distance learning programs as helping to create a virtual, global community of learners who will make positive contributions to society.

“Our digital community is going to take the values that this school is built on and translate them into a learning experience for people all over the world,” says Guthrie.

Liesl Riddle, associate dean for graduate programs and associate professor of international business, said online learning enables the School to “draw globally” for ideas, mentorship and conversation to bring about “deeper learning.”

Two of the online programs – the MTA and MSPM – predate the creation of the new program suite, although the tourism degree program was previously known as an accelerated tourism administration master’s program.

The programs employ multi-media and social networking technologies and rely on such tools as virtual discussion round tables.
