ASHEVILLE NC – Western Carolina University’s master’s degree program in business administration will hold information sessions for prospective students at WCU’s new instructional site in Biltmore Park Town Square in south Asheville during September and October.
Information sessions will be held at the new facility, located at 28 Schenck Parkway, from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, in Room 336, and from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, in Room 337.
Program director Steve Ha and program coordinator Kelly McIntyre 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 program accepts both full-time and part-time students, and the degree can be completed in 34 months on a part-time track, or 16 months on a full-time track. Courses are taught at the Biltmore Park Town Square location.
There are no prerequisites aside from two weeks of intensive review sessions. 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, Ha 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 [email protected]. Prospective students who want to schedule an individual appointment should send an email to the same address.
