Edward Waters College (EWC) is on track to launch a new online degree in business administration following recent approval of the program by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
EWC’s first-of-its-kind online program aims to meet the needs of adult learners and other students by providing a virtual opportunity for them to pursue a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in organizational management. SACSCOC’s approval of EWC’s online degree also authorizes the institution to offer any of its other SACSCOC-approved programs in distance learning or online formats, according to college officials.
“We are ecstatic to learn of this exciting news that is demonstrable evidence of the rapidly advancing competitive profile of the academic enterprise at Edward Waters College,” said EWC president and chief executive Dr. A. Zachary Faison, Jr. “This is the first step in the comprehensive re-imagining of our academic curriculum as we look to expand our academic footprint on a national scale to undergird opportunities for future enrollment growth and to provide increased access to our programs to students from throughout the nation and world.”
Although the college is approved to offer its first online program in fall 2019, the anticipated launch of the B.B.A. program is the 2020 academic year.
