Huntsman School of Business to Offer MBA Program at BYU-Idaho

This January it will become much easier for people in the Rexburg, Idaho, area to become Aggies.

In July 2012 the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business announced that it had come to an agreement with Brigham Young University-Idaho that will give students the opportunity to obtain a Utah State University Master of Business Administration degree on the Rexburg campus.
Faculty members from the Huntsman School will teach the MBA courses, and the program will offer the same curriculum taught at USU, with an emphasis on entrepreneurship, strategic thinking, decision-making skills, leadership, and effective communication. Classes will be taught on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.

Current BYU-Idaho students and employees, recent graduates, and other interested individuals from local communities are eligible to apply. Tuition for the two-year, 36-credit program is approximately $25,000, and the application deadline for Winter Semester 2013 is Nov. 15. Admissions decisions will be made by USU under the same standards as for students applying for the Huntsman School’s other professional MBA programs.

Those interested in learning more about the program, including admissions requirements, may visit HuntsmanMBA.com or phone (435) 797-2360.
