Gannon University’s Dahlkemper School of Business announced a new collaborative program that will enable students at partner academic institutions to take graduate courses in Gannon’s online Master of Business Administration or Master of Healthcare Administration while completing their undergraduate education at their home institution.

Students can take up to six graduate credits in the online MBA or MHA programs during their senior year at a cost of $100 per credit, making it an affordable option for those looking to advance their education in a shorter amount of time.

In addition, students who are accepted into the online MBA or MHA program upon graduating with their bachelor’s degree will have a 10% reduction in the cost per credit for the remaining 24 credits of the MBA, or 30 credits of the MHA program. This represents a total cost saving of approximately $6,700 for the MBA and $7,200 for the MHA.

Classes can be taken in the fall, spring or summer semesters. More information about both online programs can be found here:

Prospective students should discuss pursuing this option first with their home institution. That institution may contact Gannon to document an academic partnership agreement in order for the registration process to begin. Billing is handled between the two institutions to streamline the financial process for students and parents. The students’ home institutions apply the transfer of credit to the students’ undergraduate transcripts.

The program is designed for academic partner institutions that do not offer the same graduate programs that Gannon currently delivers online.

By directly addressing two priority issues for today’s students – accessibility and affordability – Gannon and the Dahlkemper School of Business anticipate that these academic collaborations will attract students nationwide who want to get a jump start on a graduate degree in business or healthcare administration.
