WCU MBA program hosts a series of information sessions for prospective students

Press Release

From Western Carolina University:

CULLOWHEE – Western Carolina University’s master’s degree program in business administration is hosting a series of information sessions for prospective students in Asheville, Cherokee, Cullowhee and Franklin.

Kelly McIntyre, graduate programs manager for WCU’s College of Business, will lead the sessions and discuss the advantages of WCU’s “hands-on” MBA, which focuses on the unique challenges facing Western North Carolina and its economy.

The program accepts both part-time and full-time students, and the degree can be completed in 34 months on a part-time track or 16 months on a full-time track.

Classes for part-time and full-time students are taught at WCU’s instructional site at Biltmore Park Town Square in Asheville and classes for part-time students are offered at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee.

There are no prerequisites for WCU’s MBA program aside from two weeks of intensive evening review sessions. The program is designed to be integrative and interdisciplinary with a goal of creating independent, lifelong learners who are “business ready” to assume leadership positions, McIntyre said.

Each information session will include a presentation and time for questions. The session schedule is:

Asheville (all sessions will be held at WCU’s Biltmore Park facility located at 28 Schenck Parkway) – Wednesday, March 5, noon and 6 p.m.; Wednesday, March 26, noon and 6 p.m.; Monday, April 14, noon and 6 p.m.; and Monday, May 5, noon and 6 p.m.
