Graduate Program

Nichols GPS offers three graduate programs, a Master of Business Administration (MBA) consisting of 36 credits , a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) consisting of 30 credits and a Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) consisting of 30 credits. In addition, three different dual degree options are available, the MBA/MSOL, can be obtained by completing 48 credits, the MBA/MSA, can be obtained by completing 54 credits, and the MSA/MSOL, can be obtained by completing 48 credits.

All GPS courses are delivered in a modified HyFlex model. This gives learners the flexibility to choose the learning mode that works best. Each week there is a 90-minute synchronous session held on campus. A student can participate face-to-face or remotely via a learning Web-conferencing tool. Participation in the 90-minute session is strongly encouraged and work done in the session may be required and graded. However, in the event that a student is unable to be present (physically or remotely), the 90-minute synchronous sessions are recorded and posted in the learning management system for all students to access at their convenience. (This applies to all courses with the MBA, MSOL, MSA or BUS prefix. GSB courses will continue to be taught in a hybrid format or online.)
