PHOENIX, AZ (Inside INdiana Business) — Trine University has been approved to operate an education center in Phoenix, Arizona. The university says the Phoenix Center will use a similar model as Trine’s Detroit Education Center, which opened in 2018. 

The university says its Phoenix facility will offer hybrid classes within the Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in Information Services and Master of Science in Business Analytics programs. The center will offer staff and faculty to be available to help students within the region.

“This will offer our students an extremely efficient, convenient way to have one-on-one instruction and interactions with their faculty members throughout the term,” said Brittni Heiden, director of the graduate school at Trine University.

The university says courses will plan to meet in-person once a term, on a weekend, with the remainder taking place online.
