DUDLEY, Mass. – Nichols College is offering a unique MBA degree program that can be completed in 15 months for a cost of $15,000.

The ACT (Accelerated Convenient Transformational) MBA is targeted to business professionals with at least five years of experience. The program consists of 10 courses offered entirely online, each focusing on a specific global management, data-science or operational skill.  In a unique collaboration, classes are presented in a series of guest lectures led by global thought leaders who guide students through the coursework, while Nichols College professors provide extensive individual mentorship, course guidance, and personal goal expansion.

“The ACT MBA is a game-changer for professionals seeking to advance their careers. It provides for a flexible, affordable, and accessible path to their MBA degree while upping the ante with a truly innovative curriculum,” said Robin Frkal, PhD, associate dean of the Graduate School of Business and Professional Studies. “We merge multi-media generated by experts in the field with experiential project-based learning in a curriculum focused on the essential skills needed by today’s leaders. We have taken everything we learned during the pandemic about our students and how they engage with content to design a program that supports the aspirational business professional.”

The Nichols College MBA Program was recently listed by the Boston Business Journal as one of the largest in Massachusetts. In addition to the ACT MBA, Nichols offers the traditional MBA as well as graduate degrees in organizational leadership, accounting, and counterterrorism.
