Juniata to offer additional degrees

New programs available online

Juniata College is set to offer master’s degrees in business administration and organizational leadership starting in January.

The new offerings build on the college’s existing degrees, which include master’s degrees in accounting and nonprofit leadership.

Juniata’s newest programs are available online and represent two of a handful of graduate degree programs the college anticipates introducing over the next few years.

“Many of Juniata’s successful graduates credit the globally informed, experience-based education used here as critical to their success,” read a statement attributed to Juniata College President James A. Troha.

“Our two new online graduate programs are designed very much with that tradition in mind while being delivered across a different medium. Others are forthcoming, and we are excited about our momentum in this area and what it offers to our alumni, as well as to the wider community of professionals,” Troha’s statement read.

Juniata’s master’s of business administration is designed to focus on students’ technical expertise in accounting, finance, marketing, economics, human resource management and operations management. The program includes international business study, project management and consulting experience and executive mentors who will partner with students.

The master’s degree in organizational leadership is designed to enhance students’ leadership skills for the nonprofit, public and for-profit sectors.
