Application fee waived at MBA information session Oct. 26

Thinking about earning an MBA? Learn what the Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business program has to offer at our first MBA Coffee Hour and Information Session on Thursday, Oct. 26. The event will be held from 6-7 p.m. in the Prentis Building Fishbowl, 5201 Cass Ave., Detroit.

Ilitch School representatives will briefly present information on the MBA program and spend the bulk of the hour in conversation with attendees about academics, campus resources and the school’s new building in the District Detroit.

Prospective students will have the opportunity to ask questions and network, and those who apply for admission at this event will have the $50 application fee waived.

“The Ilitch School’s highly customizable MBA program offers students an abundance of concentration choices ­– now numbering 15 – to support their individual career goals,” said Kiantee Jones, assistant dean of graduate programs. “The recent addition of concentrations in entrepreneurship and innovation, and sport and entertainment management, coupled with our upcoming move to the neighborhood of Detroit’s professional sports teams and many Fortune 500 companies, means our students are uniquely positioned to succeed.”

Optional MBA concentrations are accounting systems, auditing, corporate governance, entrepreneurship and innovation, finance, financial accounting, global supply chain management, human resources, information systems management, internal audit, international business, management, marketing, sport and entertainment management and taxation.

Many MBA courses in the fall and winter term are offered on an accelerated 4-week/11-week delivery system, allowing students to take more courses per semester and decrease time to degree. Some courses can even be completed in as little as one week, and others are offered both on campus and online, so students can choose the learning method that works best for them.
