Georgia (Jan 15, 2003) — MBA for Experienced Professionals program expands at KSU



Executives motivated to earn a master of business administration degree without disrupting their work schedule and home life now have a new opportunity. The Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University launches a second session of its popular MBA for Experienced Professionals program April 30‚ 2003. Applications are now being accepted. Another session will begin at the traditional time in November.

The program‚ which is the largest executive−format MBA program in the Southeast‚ celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

"Students benefit from an immediate return from the program‚ and roughly half of our applicants are referred by word of mouth from previous graduates‚" says Rodney G. Alsup‚ senior associate dean at the Coles College of Business. "Now its success has prompted us to become the first executive−format MBA program in Atlanta to offer two class starts per year‚" he adds.

Associates in the MBA for Experienced Professionals program meet once a month for weekend class sessions at KSU's state of the art Executive Development Center. They also work in virtual teams over the Internet with counterparts from international educational institutions. The current class is working in partnership with Romania's Institute For Business and Public Administration.

Many associates report that the information they learn can be used immediately in the work environment‚ earning recognition as well as promotions and raises‚ from their superiors.

The MBA−EP program also includes a global travel component‚ where associates see firsthand how business is conducted overseas. Previous destinations have included Finland and Singapore. Students in the current class will visit Romania.
