Lynn University Starts MBA Program In Delray Beach


Staff report

Want to earn an MBA? Now you can in Delray Beach.

Lynn University is now offering a professional MBA with a specialization in marketing or entrepreneurial management in downtown Delray at the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce.

The year-long program is geared toward millennials, Chamber CEO and president Karen Granger told commissioners at a recent city meeting.

“We could not be more thrilled,” she said in a statement. “Having Lynn University’s MBA program offered here at the Chamber is a game-changer as we build on our initiatives to elevate and nurture our growing entrepreneurial community.”

Courses will take place in the evening and include a combination of in-class and online work to allow students to obtain their MBA while working. The degree can be completed in 12 months for less than $30,000. The curriculum is designed by Lynn’s College of Business and Management and delivered through the university’s award-winning iPad-powered learning program.

“Delray Beach’s thriving businesses and innovative start-ups in hospitality, fashion, technology and product development make it an ideal environment for mid-level professionals to advance their business knowledge and careers,” Lynn President Kevin M. Ross said in a statement on Lynn’s website. “Our program is designed for working adults with convenient classes and accelerated terms, and it’s one of the most affordable professional MBA programs in the region.”

Lynn collaborated with the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce to host the program in its office at 140 NE First St.

Chamber leaders will lend their network and expertise to complement coursework with guest speakers and executive mentorships. This partnership model is a pilot program for Lynn.

Students will also have access to the chamber’s connections, a leadership assessment that evaluates their innate abilities to help understand their maximum potential and other added value elements.

If you are interested in applying for the program, do so before June 30 as space is limited. The GRE/GMAT is not required for admission.
