UPIKE expands online degree programs geared toward working professionals

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (May 14, 2018) – The University of Pikeville is expanding its online degree programs to provide working professionals the opportunity to advance their education, on their schedule, in a quality academic environment. This fall, UPIKE’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Teacher Leader Master of Arts in Education (TLM) programs will join the university’s baccalaureate nursing degree program (RN-BSN) in offering courses completely online.

Online delivery of MBA and TLM curriculum will shift from a blended format of face-to-face and online courses. UPIKE moved its RN-BSN program online in 2017 to afford registered nurses the ability to earn a bachelor’s degree while building their careers in patient care.

“Transitioning our master’s degree courses to online classrooms allows students the flexibility to successfully balance full-time careers with furthering their education,” said Provost Lori Werth, Ph.D. “Taught by experienced faculty who are leaders in their fields, our online degree programs in business, education and nursing empower adult learners to elevate their careers in professions that are critically important in our society.”

Through innovative curriculum, students enrolled in UPIKE’s accredited online degree programs are positioned to be successful learners and leaders in the 21st century.

“At the University of Pikeville, we are committed to the success of our students,” said President Burton J. Webb, Ph.D. “Our undergraduate, Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine, Kentucky College of Optometry and online programs are high-quality and student-centric.”

Werth added, “Creating and sustaining quality education is a shared responsibility of faculty, staff and academic leaders. The University of Pikeville’s overall academic quality, affordability and online programming is meeting the needs of our community.”
