BOLIVAR, Mo. – Southwest Baptist University Master of Business Administration program announced that it will offer night classes for the Kansas City area beginning this fall with classes starting August 2 and August 23. The classes will be held in First Baptist Church of Raytown.

According to SBU’s College of Business and Computer Science Dean Dr. Ken Bandy, “These courses will take a hybrid approach; instead of meeting one night a week for 16 weeks, students will meet one night a week every other week and then utilize the online format for the students as well. This will allow the students to meet their peers and professors in person, while working around their families and work schedules.”

M.B.A. Director Shelly Francka said, “We are honored and humbled by the opportunity to work with First Baptist Church and Pastor Paul Brooks and the opportunity to reach out to the Kansas City community.”
