WCU to hold MBA information sessions in Cherokee and Cullowhee

CULLOWHEE – Western Carolina University’s master’s degree program in business administration will host information sessions in Cherokee and Cullowhee for prospective students for the MBA program cohort starting in Cherokee in January.

The session in Cherokee will be held in the hotel ballroom at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort on Thursday, Sept. 12, from 4 to 5 p.m.

Sessions at WCU will be held in the Wells Fargo Business Center auditorium in the Forsyth Building on Monday, Sept. 16 from 12 to 12:45 p.m. and from 5:15 to 6 p.m.

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

The MBA program cohort in Cherokee accepts part-time students, and the degree can be completed in 34 months. There are no prerequisites. Courses are taught at state-of-the-art training facilities at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort. Students also may enroll part-time or full-time at WCU’s site at Biltmore Park Town Square in Asheville.

WCU’s 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 event will include a presentation and question-and-answer session. Individuals who plan to attend a session are asked to register by emailing kumcintyre@wcu.edu. Prospective students who want to schedule an individual appointment should send an email to the same address. For more information, contact McIntyre at 828-654-6533.
