To better serve Fort Hays State University’s students and employees, FHSU has partnered with three distance education providers of terminal degree programs (Phd and EdD). Each partner has a specific delivery method and programs. Below you will find more information on each university.
North Central University
If you’re interested in earning your PhD in business, Fort
Hays State University (FHSU) is here to help you achieve that goal. To save you
both time and expense, FHSU has partnered with Northcentral University (NCU), a
fully accredited, private distance learning institution that offers undergraduate and graduate programs in Business and Technology Management, Education and Behavior and Health Sciences. On December 1, 2011, FHSU and NCU updated a “Transfer and
Articulation Agreement,” which allows a seamless transfer for MBA graduates from FHSU into NCU doctoral programs, including the Doctorate of Business Administration and the PhD in Business.
At the current time, no other comparative MBA programs in the
State of Kansas have this relationship with NCU.
