by Owen P. Hall Jr., Terry W. Young
International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning (IJTEL), Vol. 1, No. 1/2, 2008

Abstract: After several years in the doldrums, the number of working adults enrolling in Fully Employed MBA (FEMBA) programs worldwide is growing. This growth is being fuelled, in part, by globalisation, technology, and changing demographics. To meet these challenges, the traditional classroom model for delivering non-residential business education is giving way to a more holistic learning paradigm. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the characteristics of and to outline a process for designing world-class FEMBA programs. The analysis shows that curriculum age and selectivity are inversely related to ranking.
