We create an environment that is nurturing to allow our MBA students to flourish.
The program will provide opportunities for all MBA students to have access to corporate executives throughout their degree. These executives will help to build or refine the courses, assist in the design of appropriate assignments and assessments, and respond to students’ questions throughout the course. Executive lectures may visit the campus as time permits, or they may interact with students and the professor in a virtual space. Benefits to students include the opportunity to:
Build a strong relationship with the executive lectures, leading to a diverse professional network,
Engage professionally with high-level business leaders,
Gain deeper insight about a chosen career path or area of interest, and
Link current learning to real-world business and industry practices.
Programs that enhance students experiences include:
MBA Closing Bell Speaker Series
The Closing Bell Speaker Series (CBSS) began in September 2008. The program invites successful scholarly professionals to the campus to engage with students in topical discussions that reflect the changing global environment. The primary objectives of the CBSS are:
1) To provide insight on the current trends facing businesses today.
2) To inspire students and provide additional encouragement for quality personal and career development.
3) To enrich the students’ lives by providing them with role models in the careers for which they are preparing.
