The Flex-Mode Program

Under the direction of Ilker Baybars, senior deputy dean for academic affairs at the Graduate School of Industrial Administration, the business school’s interactive distance learning program—taught through a $100,000 teleconferencing system—gives participants the opportunity to earn a master’s degree in Industrial Administration.

The three-year program is just as comprehensive as the school’s full-time master’s degree track, covering areas like quantitative managerial decision-making, business communication and the political environment for business leaders. All students in the distance learning program are company sponsored.

United Technologies Corp. and the Ford Motor Company have sponsored students in the program.
