The Distance Learning Executive MBA degree is a 48 graduate credit hours program and is designed to be completed in 22-months. The course will be introduced with an intensive resident module at the UH Mānoa campus with state-of-the-art, faculty-directed, distance education technology. The highly interactive program will fully engage students in their courses and provide business theory with practical applications.

The program's format offers an immersive learning community with the flexibility of distance learning. Its design allows students on the neighbor islands to pursue a graduate degree while continuing to live and work in their place of residence.

Scholarships Available

The late James P.D. Thropp, Jr., BBA '87, established four new scholarship funds benefiting business students at UH Manoa and at his alma mater, UH Hilo. Approximately $150,000 is available for scholarships - for Hawaii residents with preference for neighbor island students. Applications can be obtained from Toni Mingo, Executive Director of Shidler College of Business Executive Education Center, toni.kruse@hawaii.edu.

Distance Learning Technology

The Distance Learning Executive MBA program employs the latest technology in video conferencing software to transmit video and audio through the Internet. This will provide live interaction among students in multiple sites simultaneously.

The Distance Learning Executive MBA classes are highly interactive and are broadcast in real time so that all students on the receiving sites will receive instruction simultaneously. Similar to a real class setting, students will be able to ask questions, offer comments, conduct project presentations and participate in other dialogue in real time.
