Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business Executive MBA (EMBA) program is teaming up with the National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) to reach out to prospective and current MBA students and provide them with information on why they should pursue an MBA and how to make their MBA experience more valuable. As an outgrowth of this partnership, LeBow College is also offering a scholarship to a member of NBMBAA.
The four-part “Knowledge Series: The Strategic Management of the MBA” series will visit various business schools in the Philadelphia region on a quarterly basis. The first session will be at Drexel University on October 6, 2007 at 10 a.m. in the Pearlstein Business Learning Center, Room 101. LeBow alumni and EMBA staff will speak to the “relevance” of earning an MBA and discuss what MBA students need to know to manage learning and how an MBA can benefit their careers.
“We are very pleased to participate with NBMBAA in this series because it provides those unsure about pursuing an MBA a thorough explanation about how the experience will benefit their careers and their lives overall,” said George P. Tsetsekos, dean, Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business. “It benefits prospective students, and even those already enrolled in an MBA program, to have a forum where they can go to have their questions answered from those administering MBA programs.”
In January 2008, Drexel faculty and staff will also be participating in the second session of the series, which will be held at a University to be named later and will focus on MBA preparation.
