Hardin County residents have another option to further their business careers.

The Radcliff campus of Webster University is offering a Master of Business Administration degree geared toward adult students.

Residents have been driving to Louisville for the program, said Tammy Burke, community relations coordinator at Webster. Now, they can stay in Hardin County.

“People have been asking for it,” Burke said.

Those interested in enrolling in the program can attend an open house from 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the campus at the Regional Education Center in Radcliff, which is the former Challenger Learning Center.

Burke said the open house is an informal opportunity for those interested to ask questions regarding the MBA program, such as the curriculum and financial aid.

“We’re inviting people to come in and have a conversation with us,” she said.

Classes are one evening a week and the degree program takes about two years to complete, according to a news release. The next term at Webster begins March 17, Burke said.

While some programs have pre-determined the sequence of classes for students, this program offers flexibility.

“The student gets to choose when they go to school, when they take courses,” she said.

The campus has about 35 students currently attending classes.

Military members and first responders receive a special tuition rate, according to a news release.
